Do you have what it takes to catch a killer?

Become a crime scene investigator for the night and work with our Museum forensic experts to solve a murder mystery. Gather and analyse evidence to establish when, where and how the victim died.

After your investigation, you'll go to a court case held by London barristers who will cross-examine our experts and call everything into question.

This interactive night at the Museum combines real science and crime fiction.
