Crime Solving Activity: Crime at the Century

Ages 16+ 

"Crime at the Century” takes place in 1949, and our very own “Canada’s Sherlock Holmes,” John F.C.B. Vance is on the brink of retirement. Solving this case will prove you’re capable of taking over his position as the city's Forensic Inspector.


This self-guided activity is a great way to see all the exhibits and historic spaces in the museum—including the morgue and autopsy suite— all while solving a murder mystery on your device.* 

Listen to witness statements, examine the crime scene, and choose wisely to piece together the evidence and solve the case. 

Ask for the Crime-Solving Activity when you arrive.


Cost: $5 (with the purchase of admission)


*Requires a device capable of scanning a QR code for access. 


Add either activity to your visit for only $5!
