The Museum’s popular Murder Mystery returns with a new tale. Set in 1941, The Curse of the Hope Diamond is filled with countless twists and turns, and features a cocktail reception, a seated four-course meal, and lively guest participation – you could be the Murderer!
This year’s event is a lighthearted, bawdy romp hosted by socialite and Hope Diamond owner, Evelyn Welsh, who is well known for her eccentric dinner parties. During the party make sure to see the famed blue diamond which is speculated to hold mystical powers. Legend has it that anyone who has possessed the diamond has ended up destitute, institutionalized, or prematurely dead.  Hilarious hijinks and scandalous secrets set the stage for a farce of murderous proportions perfectly paired with our Maker & Muse jewelry exhibition!

Tickets include a reception, dinner in the Museum’s historic Ballroom, and prizes. Period attire is encouraged, but not required. Guests must be 21 years of age.  As space is limited, advance ticket purchase is highly recommended. The Curse of the Hope Diamond is presented in partnership with Get Away with Murder Productions.

Please note that in exchange for your reservation and/or ticket, you have authorized the Driehaus Museum to photograph, record, film, video tape, or otherwise use your likeness, performance, image, and/or voice for use in general and/or program-related Driehaus Museum promotional materials. If for any reason, you do not wish to be photographed, please provide your name(s) at registration that evening.
