Fun, mysteries and creativity! You might think you know the museum pretty well but did you know 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?

Pupils will discover how Mike uses museum artefacts to create mystery stories, and will produce ideas for their own puzzling tales. Plus, have fun with wordplay creating crazy new gadgets and mystery story ideas in seconds! 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.
