There are so many fun things planned for 2023 at the Buffalo Museum of Science. Mercedes Wilson and Emily Lampa went there to find out more.
Just one of the many fun things to do this January is their “Get a Clue: Challenge Edition.” Amy Biber Collson, Buffalo Museum of Science, says this event is one of her after-hours science events for anyone 21 and older.
All of their events have a theme, and this is “Get a Clue” and it’s a murder mystery. Amy says, “We put a little twist on the Clue board game. Our suspects are scientists with very funny pun names.” She goes on to say, “you and your team of two to ten are going to travel around the museum and you are going to talk to different witnesses stationed on three floors of the museum and you are going to guess a person, a place and a weapon and all the weapons are items. of his collection and objects of his collection”.
This is the 10th anniversary of the museum, so they are adding challenges. So, for teams that may not have a good grasp of the game, you can get a mini fast pass by doing challenges like a mini scavenger hunt for clues or solving a puzzle to get some clues to get you started and on your way.
This year they are taking more of the emphasis off timing so you don’t have to speed up the game. Amy says the game is designed for adults to get in and enjoy the museum so you can get a drink from the cash bar, explore the museum, talk to a witness, and finally make your accusation at the end.
The “Get a Clue: Challenge Edition” will take place on Friday, January 13the from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Science Museum. Tickets are $35 per person and Buffalo Museum of Science members save 10%.
