The Curse of Amenhotep – a murder mystery

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.

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 Ancient Egyptian Murder Mystery evenings at Torquay Museum have attracted universal praise from guests who have 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 limited and sell fast, so early booking is highly recommended. Reserve your tickets by calling Torquay Museum on: 01803 293975.
