COLUMBIA -- The South Carolina State Museum is giving families a chance to solve The Case of the Purloined Pendant during a special "Night at the Museum: Mystery" Friday through Saturday, Feb. 9-10. Guests will get to experience the entire museum, including special shows in the BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina Planetarium, the Rev. Dr. Solomon Jackson, Jr. 4D Theater and a night under the stars in the Boeing Observatory, in addition to helping the museum staff solve the mystery.
Guests of "Night at the Museum: Mystery," will discover one of the museum’s new artifacts has gone missing. They will then be divided into groups and led through the galleries, where some of the museum’s iconic exhibits will “come to life.” Characters based on actual South Carolina stories of cultural history, natural history, and science and technology will give the guests clues to help find the culprit and bring them to justice before the night ends.
Saturday morning, guests will enjoy a light continental breakfast followed by a special morning showing of The LEGO Movie 4D Experience.
Guests will need to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, any necessary medications, and an overnight bag with pajamas and toiletries.
Friday night check-in is from 5 to 5:45 p.m. and lights-out is at 11 p.m. Overnight education staff and security will be on hand.
Tickets are $35 per person for public and $28 per person for members. Space is limited and reservations are required. For more information, call 803-898-4999 or visit scmuseum.org to reserve a space today.
