Upcoming Science Museum Oklahoma Event Offers Chance to Become a True Crime Detective


OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Staff at Science Museum Oklahoma say it’s time to put the skills you’ve learned by watching real crime shows to the test.

The museum presents “SMO21 True Crime: Blood, Bones and Booze” from 6.30pm to 10pm on Friday August 27th.

The adults-only event – inspired by the Museum’s traveling exhibit, Sherlock Holmes: The Exhibit – summons amateur sleuths to solve a crime.

Museum educators and community partners will help participants develop their crime-solving skills as they face off against shady figures in their quest to catch the culprit.

“They will have to carefully monitor the course of the night and be prepared to focus on every detail,” reads an announcement from the museum. “Examining the fingerprints, blood splatters, and other strange evidence, guests will need the wit and courage of Sherlock himself to survive the evening and solve the crime.”
