Wannabe Sherlock Holmeses and amateur Hercule Poirots may find a perfectly puzzling Halloween experience in the Shelburne Museum’s virtual murder mystery party, The Scarab’s Curse. The museum’s vintage Grand Isle train car transports participating sleuths to 1912, where the impresario of a traveling antiquities exhibit is found dead — stabbed, in fact, by a golden dagger! And the ancient Egyptian mummy is missing from its sarcophagus! In this fully interactive whodunit, investigators explore every elegant compartment, interview each secretive suspect and unravel the case of the escaped undead. Proceeds benefit the Shelburne Museum’s stewardship and preservation efforts.

Price: $15; preregister.
