The Peterborough Museum & Archives welcomes you to its exhibition galleries

Live History: Behind Glass                         

Something isn't right here. That book is out of place. There is a label in the display case, but no item behind it. There are antiques in the incorrect place; and artifacts that are standing the wrong side up. Clearly, the Peterborough Museum & Archives needs your help. As curators of other nearby museums, you are called to the venue after hours in order to help figure out what is causing these disturbances. Once inside, you are greeted by one of the exhibits who has come to life. They are happy to show you around and share tales about the other exhibits. As you hear stories from their lives, it becomes clear that one of them is the culprit behind these disturbances. The question is, which one? Succeed and you will find yourself promoted. Fail, and you may find yourself trapped behind glass forever.

Behind Glass has escape room, theatre, and murder mystery elements. Expect to work with all you fellow audience members and the actors as you try to discover which historical figure has been causing chaos at the Peterborough Museum & Archives.

Tickets are $20 + tax per participant

Registration opens on Monday, October 16 at 9:30 a.m.
