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 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.
