Sips & Suspense Mystery Adventure at Science Center of Iowa Mixology Night

Friday, October 20, 2023 @ 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

The priceless, one-of-a-kind Nebula Diamond has gone missing from its exhibit at the Science Center of Iowa. Ten suspects – all with a motive and means – have been detained. Now we need your help, detective. Follow the clues and find the diamond before it’s lost forever!

Put on your detective hats and get ready for a night of mystery and suspense at the Science Center of Iowa’s Sips & Suspense Mixology Night. Join us on October 20th from 6 PM to 9 PM to take part in all the fun.

The Rook Room is putting together a massive mystery adventure that will take you to every corner of the museum in an effort to solve a seemingly unsolvable crime. Look for evidence, attend programs, and perform experiments in order to find clues and put them all together to uncover the mystery.

Here’s what to expect:

Check in and get your dossier full of useful information to get your investigation started.

Work as a team or on your own to find clues to the crime hidden around the museum. Don’t forget to attend programs and demonstrations – you never know where you’ll pick up a hint.

Think you have it solved? Write down your answers in your dossier and return to the Rook Room “briefing desk” to figure out if you nailed it or if you let the criminals slip through.

This is a for-fun mystery adventure and we encourage you to take your time and enjoy the experience while engaging with everything the Science Center has to offer.

This mystery is part of the Science Center’s Mixology Night adult programming for ages 21+. Tickets are $20 for non-members and $18 for members. Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase at the event.
