Join the Driehaus Museum for a night of mystery, mayhem, and murder! The Museum’s popular murder mystery returns in its third year with a new tale filled with twists and turns.

It’s October 1893, and Chicago’s World’s Columbian Exposition will soon celebrate its closing ceremony. As an elegant farewell to the fair, Mr. and Mrs. Roland C. Nickerson are hosting a masquerade party at the Marble Palace. From foreign visitors to disguised dignitaries, the guest list contains some suspicious characters—guaranteeing a to-die-for evening for all. But don’t just read about it in the society pages—accept the invitation and attend!

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Ticket includes light fare, drinks, and dessert bar. Masquerade and period attire is welcome, but not required. Guests will actively explore all four floors of the mansion. Must be 21 years of age to participate.
