Do you have what it takes to catch a killer?
Crime Scene Live is an award-winning event at the Natural History Museum where you'll step into the science coat of a CSI. With the help of real-life forensic scientists and police detectives you'll gather and analyse the evidence to establish when, where, and how a victim died in a grisly museum murder.
The interactive mystery begins in the Lecture Theatre where you'll be assigned to a team, before heading out around the museum to find the evidence. At the end of the night all will be revealed and you'll find out how close you came to solving the mystery.
Be aware that there's a lot of teaching involved in this event (here are plenty of slide projections, microscopes and lab coats), so come ready to learn. And there are also quite a few scenes of a gruesome nature, so come ready to squirm as well!
