This year we are heading back to the 1920s. The archaeologist, Howard Carter, has discovered King Tuts tomb, and ‘Tutmania’ has spread worldwide. The newest craze for high society is to remove mummies from Egypt, and to host ‘mummy unwrapping parties’. Local doctor, Victor Carnarvon, has had the young archeologist, Ian Jones, bring back a mummy for this purpose. During the party, Jane, a young reporter, is found dead, strangled with the mummy wrappings. The question is - who would want her dead, and why?
All assistant detectives will meet a colourful cast of characters, and have the opportunity to interview them and search for clues. Prizes, donated by local merchants, will be awarded to the detectives who catch the culprit.
Tickets are $20 and must be purchased in advance. Tickets sell out every year, so get yours early to avoid disappointment. There is a maximum of 100 tickets sold. This event is recommended for 16+. Please bring a flashlight and wear comfortable shoes.
The event will run from 7:30 p.m. until 10 p.m., but doors will open starting at 7 p.m., on Friday, Sept. 9th.
The Museum Village is located at 16210 Island Road, Port Perry.
