BYU museum sponsors mystery dinner date night July 29

Brigham Young University’s Museum of Peoples and Cultures invites couples to help solve a mystery during “The Disappearance of the Weaving Swords” dinner night. The mystery dinner will take place Friday, July 29, at 6 p.m. in the museum, located at 100 East and 700 North in Provo.    

Tickets are $24 per couple and include dinner and a dessert. Beginning Monday, July 25, tickets will be available at the Wilkinson Student Center Information Desk.

“The Disappearance of the Weaving Swords” will begin with a tour of the MPC’s newest exhibition, “Entwined: A Vibrant Heritage of the Modern Maya,” where the “crime scene” of the mystery takes place. The mystery unfolds over dinner as clues are revealed and accusations are made. Each character is a suspect in the mystery and everyone must prove their innocence to the other participants. Identity profiles are assigned to each individual when they purchase tickets and include a brief history of their character along with costume suggestions. 

“The mystery dinner is my favorite of the MPC date nights,” said Anna McKean, promotions manager at the MPC. “It’s always entertaining to see what people do with their character.”

Each semester, the MPC hosts a Mystery Dinner date night where couples play out character personalities and work to discover who stole a valuable artifact from the Museum. But this semester, the mystery has a twist.

“We needed to rewrite the script in order to have the mystery fit the context of the exhibit,” McKean said. “It will be nice to have a fresh story for this date night.”

Unfortunately, the MPC cannot accommodate food allergies for the Mystery Dinner, but those interested may call the MPC to find out the menu for that evening.

For more information, visit mpc.byu.edu or call the MPC at (801) 422-0020 at the mpc@byu.edu.
