Time is running out to put your detective skills to the test in the Wilbur D. May Museum’s current exhibition – Sherlock Holmes and the Clocktower Mystery. Hundreds of visitors have come to try their luck at solving the mystery, but it’s tougher than you think.

“The solve rate is only about 20 percent! It’s a tough mystery to solve and requires someone with sharp skills of deduction,” says Samantha Szesciorka, assistant curator at the May Museum.

As guests enter the exhibition they are transported back in time, experiencing the sights, sounds—and even the smells!—of Victorian London. As the mystery is revealed, visitors search for clues in an attempt to figure out whodunit. But, watch out for red herrings! This interactive exhibition closes on Oct. 29.

Exhibit Hours:

Wednesday | Thursday: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Friday: 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Saturday: CLOSED
