Murder at the ROM

Murder at the ROM

461 ROM at dusk

A curator has been murdered and a trail of clues left behind, connected to secrets in the collections. Working in teams of 2-6 people, you follow the clues through the museum, collecting pieces of information while piecing together a tale of greed, lust, pride and revenge. There are multiple suspects, one victim and you, the sleuths, must crack a cryptic code left in the curator’s appointment book to solve the mystery. After your adventure, use your museum admission to explore more of the ROM’s world famous collections.
Tickets are $34.99 + HST per person include admission to the Royal Ontario Museum. They must be purchased in advance from Urban Capers Scavenger Hunts at the links below.

Please note:  The Murder at the ROM scavenger hunt is not associated with the ROM, but is strictly a product of Urban Capers, and any questions relating to the product, location, etc. should be directed to Urban Capers.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Our murder mystery scavenger hunts can be a tad grisly for some. Some of the clues and references will be over kids’ heads and they can get frustrated. Participants as young as 11 have taken part with their parents and had a great time so at the end of the day, it is up to the parent / grandparent / guardian / cool aunt or uncle.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

If you would like to get in touch, please send an email to, or call 647 852 6444.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, there will be a sign-in sheet for those registered. If you are transferring your ticket to another person, they must bring your ticket.

What is the refund policy?

Once you have purchased a ticket for an event, our people go into action, printing off materials, lining up staff for the event day and purchasing admission tickets if a museum or other institution is involved. Because of this, we do not offer refunds. However, your ticket is transferrable. So if you can’t make it, you can give your ticket to someone else to bring to the event.
