Museum of Peoples, Cultures hosts mystery dinner night March 11-12

Brigham Young University’s Museum of Peoples and Cultures will host the mystery dinner “The Disappearance of the Parrot Jar” Friday and Saturday, March 11-12, at 6 p.m. in the museum at 100 E. 700 North, Provo.

Tickets for the date night are $24 per couple, including a dinner and dessert, and will be available at the Wilkinson Student Center Information Desk beginning March 7.

Each semester, the museum hosts a Mystery Dinner date night where couples will play out characters  and work to discover who stole a valuable artifact from the museum. Identity profiles are assigned to each individual when they purchase tickets and include a brief history of their character along with costume suggestions. 

“It’s really fun to see what participants do with their character,” said Anna McKean, promotions manager at the museum.  “Each session is different because of the people who come — the variety makes it a lot of fun.”

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

For more information, visit mpc.byu.edu or contact Anna McKean at (801) 422-0020 or e-mail mpc@byu.edu.
