New offering next week
• A Murder Mystery: Mummified Murder, will be offered 6 p.m. on Nov. 27, as a special after-hours event. It’s a classic who-done-it mystery in an after-hours interactive theatre performance. The event is for ages 13 and older.
When the local museum discovers their newly displayed mummy is a fake, and that the fake is actually the body of the assistant curator, mayhem and accusations fly. To sort out the grisly murder, the best crime solvers are needed. These patrons-turned-detectives will interview real-life actors and comb through elaborate crime scenes to solve the puzzle. Registration is required to participate in this event.
