Sherlock Holmes & The Clocktower Mystery
June 2 – August 22, 2010
A terrible crime has been committed, and London’s most brilliant detective needs your help to get to the bottom of it. This immersive and wildly entertaining murder-mystery tests visitors’ sleuthing skills and powers of observation to unravel the exceedingly clever “whodunit” exhibit. Gather clues and evaluate evidence to solve your way through this three-dimensional clue game.
Starting at the scene of the crime, the clocktower, solve your way through eight sequential settings. Traveling from a caretaker's home to a séance room, from the seamy London docks to a hidden opium den, the sights, sounds and smells of turn-of-the-century London greet you around every corner. Each scene is laden with clues and “red herrings,” carefully placed as physical evidence within the rooms. In a dramatic finale, meet one of the characters from the story and consult with a live actor to state your conviction and find out “whodunit.”
"Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable must be the truth." Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
