Join Liberty Hall Museum on Saturday, November 26, 2016, as they will be hosting a murder mystery event! Murder Mystery at the Museum resembles a live-action version of the classic board game, Clue. 

Students who participate will be transported back to the year of 1932. Mr. Fredric Ericson, a visitor in the Kean household, has been murdered, and it is up to the students to find out who the culprit is. Could it possibly be his wife that maybe he no longer loved? Or maybe it was his son-in-law who was written out of the will? Perhaps it could be one of his trusted servants? 

Guests will be in teams and become detectives as they are guided throughout the first floor of the museum. They will get to interview Mr. Ericson's family, five guests who came along with him before his murder at dinner and find out who, what and why Mr. Ericson was murdered. 

Think this murder mystery can be solved and be the first one to piece together the clues before anyone else? 

The times available for the event are 4 p.m., 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. Each session is about an hour and a half long. 

Entrance is $40 per person and reservations must be made by Saturday, November 19, 2016. Tickets can be purchased by calling 908-527-0400 or on the website


After the mystery has been solved, those who have participated will receive criminally good refreshments!
