Murder at the Mütter®: Illusion


Member and Fellow tickets released: March 11 at 9am

General tickets released: March 18

Forensics meets fun in this murder mystery party!

For the eighth year we host the tremendously popular signature event of the Philadelphia Science Festival, that always sells out! Uncover clues, analyze evidence, and unmask the illusion alongside real forensics experts. Find out if you have what it takes to be a crime scene investigator. 

The afternoon includes two hours of programming (including some walking and standing) followed by a cocktail reception and light hors d'oeuvres.

Ages: 16 and up (ages 16 and 17 must be accompanied by a guardian 21 years or over)

Ticket price includes same day admission to the Mütter Museum any time from 12:30 pm to 5:00 pm. Attendees are encouraged to visit the Museum before 2:00 pm, as time will be limited once the Program commences. Fellows and Mütter Museum members will have “early bird” access to tickets starting on 3/11 at 9AM. General admission and student tickets open to the public on 3/18 at 9AM. To be sure to get a ticket, become a member now!

Program will begin promptly at 2:00 pm.


The Mütter Museum helps the public appreciate the mysteries and beauty of the human body while understanding the history of diagnosis and treatment of disease.
