BYU Museum of Peoples, Cultures hosts mystery date night Oct. 9-10

The BYU Museum of Peoples and Cultures, located at 700 N. 100 East in Provo, will host a mystery date night where couples will work together to solve “The Disappearance of the Parrot Jar” Friday and Saturday, Oct. 9-10, beginning at 6 p.m.

Tickets for the date night are $24 per couple and will include dinner. They can be purchased at the Wilkinson Student Center Information Desk beginning Oct. 5.

Participants will immerse themselves into character personalities and work as detectives to discover who "stole" a valuable artifact from the museum’s exhibition. Identity profiles are assigned to each individual when they purchase tickets and include a brief history of their character’s background along with a costume description.

The date night will begin with a tour of the “crime scene” where the artifact was stolen. The mystery will then unfold over dinner, as clues are revealed and accusations made. Each character is a suspect in the mystery and everyone must prove their innocence to the other participants.

“The mystery and suspense create such an exciting atmosphere,” said Anna McKean, promotions manager at the MPC. “It really gives people a chance to come learn and experience the museum at a whole new level.”
