Mystery at the Museum: The Search for Dippy

Book your place at the Museum

Friday 28 October, 2022

Time: 6:45 PM

Location: Natural History Museum

Ticket Price: £35

The year is 1905 and you have been invited to a special preview of the newest display at the Natural History Museum - 'Dippy the Diplodocus'.

But when you arrive the curators are in a panic and you realise something is amiss - you’ve found a note that tells you several parts of Dippy the Diplodocus are going to be stolen before the display opens!

We need your help to follow the clues around the Museum, question the suspects and track down the culprit before the King and notables arrive for the display's launch the following night. Can you help the curators prevent a national scandal? Use your best sleuthing skills to solve this mystery.

This escape room-like game will have you exploring the Museum after hours while you find and interview the six suspects, all of whom have something to hide. Which of them is lying and who is trying to help you? Can you solve the mystery within an hour? The challenge is on!

Further Information

After the experience you will have the opportunity to view a selection of our galleries and meet some of the Museum's scientists who will be debunking myths and misconceptions about the natural world.

The location: Natural History Museum
