5 reasons why you don’t want to miss this fabulous and fascinating event:

  1. Employ your forensics skills and have fun solving a murder mystery. What if you suddenly found yourself in the middle of a murderous and mysterious crime scene? What if the murderer was sitting right next to you and you didn’t know it? You can put your detective talents to work in a supremely entertaining quest to solve the mystery.
  2. Enjoy great food and drink, including wine and craft beer and an always fabulous buffet dinner from our Lady Bird Lane Café.
  3. Explore the Science Mill. The entire museum will be open throughout the evening. See what’s new and try your hand at the more than 40 exhibits and be sure to visit our in-progress Science & Art Park under the stars in the Science Mill’s backyard.
