Crime Scene Live

Catch a killer

Become a crime scene investigator for the night and work with the Museum’s forensic experts to solve a murder mystery. 

Do you have what it takes to catch a killer?

A killer is on the loose and it’s up to you to bring them to justice. As a crime scene investigator, you’ll need to gather the evidence, analyse the facts and carry out experiments with the Museum’s forensic experts to establish when, where and how the victim died.

Can you help crack the case?

You and your team will explore the Museum and learn about the science behind real-life crime scene investigation.

Can you stop the killer from striking again? By the end of the night, you’ll find out how close you came to solving the mystery.

This interactive murder-mystery game set in the galleries of the Museum was created by Wet Picnic.
