Murder Mystery at UCL



UCL Museums at Night event

The Game was Afoot.

UCL Museums had suffered from a spate of foul actions of a criminal nature. Learning and Access Officer, Dean Veall, warned that the fiends responsible were using the Museums most precious collections for their foul deeds.

Invitation To Events immediately dispatched a team of trusted investigators to help solve the crime. On arrival they discovered that a murder had been committed!

The next few hours were spent combing the museums and searching for clues. This event was part murder mystery and part treasure hunt. Teams had to visit various museums, rooms and areas to find the suspects and answer questions about the collections. Unlike Treasure hunts in London events, where the clues can be cryptic or puzzles, the clues were all straight questions. However, the answers to the clues led to a large puzzle that revealed the murder weapon.

Among the places visited were:-

Grant Museum of Zoology

Petrie Museum

UCL Art Museum

Jeremy Bentham Auto-Icon

The team succeeded in correctly spotting the murderer but not in determining  the murder weapon. The prize for best costume of the night went to a well deserving Scoobey Doo.
