What's On at Torquay Museum

Murder Mystery at Torquay Museum - The Curse of Amenhotep

Date: 9 December 2017

6.30pm - 8.30pm or 8.30pm - 10.30pm
Tickets £25 each

Torquay Museum is the unique setting for an exciting and unusual fully interactive Ancient Egyptian Murder Mystery evening. A priceless Egyptian artefact has been stolen - the Stone of Amenhotep. A murder has been committed. Is this the infamous Curse of Amenhotep or is it a robbery gone wrong?

Teams of guests will work against the clock to sift through the evidence and clues scattered across the Museum's dimly-lit galleries, piece them together and solve the mystery. All against the backdrop of galleries full of a fascinating assortment of Ancient Egyptian artefacts, including a human mummy, Agatha Christie manuscripts, sabre-toothed tiger skulls, and much more. At the end of the evening the teams will come together to see which is the first to solve the mystery of the missing Stone of Amenhotep and discover the identity of the murderer.

There will be two chances to experience the Museum’s Escape Room Murder Mystery – one beginning at 6.30pm and the other at 8.30pm on Saturday 9th December. This fun brain-teasing evening would be ideal for singles, couples, groups of friends or colleagues. There will be five groups of 6 or 7 people at each event, but don’t worry if your group isn't that big as the Museum will put people into teams. The evening will last for approximately two hours and there will be experts on hand to help out and give you guidance.The Museum’s café will be open during both evenings for tea, coffee, cake and light meals.

This is the second Ancient Egyptian Murder Mystery at Torquay Museum - with the first one attracting universal praise from the guests who had so much fun solving the mystery of the Curse of Amenhotep. BBC television's Spotlight programme even broadcast live from our first murder mystery.

Tickets are £25 each, but please note that places are very limited and sell fast, so early booking is highly recommended. Reserve your tickets by calling the Museum on: 01803 293975.

Torquay Museum’s Murder Mystery evenings are run by experienced Exeter-based escape room specialists Red House Mysteries.
