Events for Adults at the Natural History Museum
Crime Scene Live
Do you have what it takes to catch a killer? Become a detective for the night and work with the Museum’s forensic experts to solve a murder mystery. A priceless stone has been stolen from the Natural History Museum and a killer is on the loose. It’s up to you to gather the evidence, analyse the facts and carry out experiments to bring the criminal to justice. You and your team of sleuths will explore the Museum and use the science behind crime scene investigation and detective work to establish when, where and how the crimes occurred.
You’ll learn about the tiny animals used to determine time of death, analyse fingerprints with real-life police officers, decode blood spatter patterns and work with our forensic experts to catch the killer.
