Cape Fear Museum News: A Museum Whodunit

Cape Fear Museum of History and Science needs your help cracking a curious case of “whodunit?” Families are asked to become a super sleuth, expect the unexpected, search for clues and solve an all new Mystery at the Museum Saturday, January 26 between 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. (last ticket sold at 3:00). Something mysterious has happened at Cape Fear Museum! What’s missing and who would have stolen it? While on the scene, participants scour the Museum for evidence and practice their observation skills. Museum detectives will dust and lift fingerprints, as well as analyze the “blood type” found at the scene. Can a footprint help solve the crime? Is it an animal or human? Be on the lookout for red herrings and hidden evidence. Forensic science, technology and your imagination will help you unravel the latest Mystery at the Museum.
Think you know the culprit? Report your observations to a news team and be sure to stop by the Time Warner Cable table with your completed detective log to win a tablet! Mystery at the Museum is sponsored by Time Warner Cable’s Connect A Million Minds initiative.
