Fun, mysteries and creativity! You might think you know the museum pretty well but did you know that there is a room underneath where a team of expert investigators solve mysteries? Author Mike Nicholson will introduce your pupils to the Museum Mystery Squad. Could your class help them crack their cases? Many of the objects here have secrets attached to them. Join in the mystery story competition and create your very own museum mystery. Books will be available for sale and signing (£5.99 each).

The event will last 60 minutes. You will then have the chance to explore the museum, using our resources, to choose objects to inspire your own mystery stories.
