The Field of Screams Murder Mystery Scavenger Hunt

A deadly game of cat and mouse—and dinosaurs

Something strange is afoot at the Field Museum. Staffers involved in acquiring a sacred Egyptian relic have been turning up dead. Is it the work of a serial killer? Or the dreaded Curse of Ahtchu? To solve the mystery and stop the killings, you’ll have to crack a hieroglyphic code, question a suspect, and uncover the museum’s secrets.

Along the way, you might…

  • Search an Egyptian tomb for clues
  • Interrogate spirits of the dead in the South Pacific
  • Scrutinize dinosaurs
  • Barge into a cocktail hour at an African watering hole
  • Find out what’s wrong with the man-eating lions of Tsavo

Those are just a few of the fun challenges on this hunt that leads you to the best of the museum’s exhibits. No knowledge of the museum or its contents is required—you just need a sharp mind and comfy shoes.
