The ancient mummy of an Incan priestess has arrived in Toronto, recently awakened from her five thousand year slumber in the desert. Rumour has it, the artifact brings with it a terrible curse…

A gruesome murder has taken place at the Royal Ontario Museum, and the police only have 2 hours to solve the case. You and your team of sleuths must track down the killer, using clues from a detective’s notebook. Was it the nosy security guard? The brilliant wife? The museum rival? Or could there really be a mummy’s curse?

The Mummy’s Curse is a difficult puzzle, and you’ll need to use all of your wits and powers of deduction to solve the case.

Tickets are $34.99 + HST per person and 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 Mummy’s Curse 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.


Hunts take two hours, with some additional time beforehand for waiver-signing and instructions and afterwards for tallying the scores, for a total of 2 1/2 hours.

Bonus points are given for most creative team name, so start thinking!

This hunt takes place entirely indoors. Please come prepared with comfortable shoes – you’ll be covering a lot of territory.

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