It is your last chance to catch the amazing murder at the museum exhibition in Barcelona as it has been running since 12th Mar 2008 and will finish on the 6th Jan 2009. Found at the Museu de Ciències Naturals, this cross between an exhibition and game costs €4.10 to enter, with concessions paying €2.15, and opening hours are; Tue-Sat 10am-6.30pm; Sun 10am-2.30pm.
This exhibition lets viewers not only look but become involved in a murder mystery story. Visitors are plunged into the middle of a crime scene, where the director of the museum has been shot in his office. The aim is to gather as much evidence as possible – from bullet shells to DNA and fingerprints – before using real life forensic lab techniques to analyse the findings.
This gives children and adults alike, the opportunity to solve the murder and learn about solving murders in real life in the process and also opens peoples eyes to how today’s murders are actually solved and what types of leads investigators follow. Some results are eye-opening – for example, entomology (the study of insects) is vital in crime scene investigation. The larvae on the corpse can reveal exactly when the victim was killed and whether the body has been moved since death.
After interrogating witnesses and six suspects, visitors can declare their final verdict on who they think is the murderer, and the police give feedback on whether you’re a Sherlock Holmes in the making… or not.
