Murder at the ROM

1:00 to 3:30 pm.

A curator has been murdered and a trail of clues left behind, connected to secrets in the collections. As you solve clues, you’ll begin to piece together a tale of greed, lust, pride and revenge.

On an Urban Capers Scavenger Hunt, you don’t collect items, but rather answers to tricky and humourous questions. This event is not associated with the ROM. Tickets must be purchased in advance at www.urbancapers.com/murder-at-the-royal-ontario-museum/.
