3rd Annual Get A Clue @ The Buffalo Museum of Science

It’s not that often that we get to play larger that life versions of our favorite board games. That’s why whenever the Buffalo Museum of Science offers a chance to play a life-size game of CLUE, the response from players is overwhelming. After all, it’s not everyday that a museum turns its floors into a murder mystery crime scene. Sound interesting? If so, then maybe you should think about participating in the third annual Get a Clue happy hour event on Friday, January 24 from 6 to 9pm.


Just like the game of CLUE, players comprise teams of two to ten people who work together to gather clues from witnesses placed throughout the museum. Throw in weapons and suspects that are significant to the museum, and various crime scenes in hallways and rooms, the event might look something like this:

Was it Lilian Fairchild in the Marchand Gallery with the mastodon femur? Or was it Chauncey Hamlin in the Vertebrate Hall with the microscope? The Buffalo Museum of Science (BMS) will once again turn its galleries into a life-sized board game for its third annual Get a Clue happy hour event on Friday, January 24 from 6 to 9pm. Tickets include the murder-mystery game, a cash bar, and access to all of the Museum’s permanent exhibits and science studios. The event is for adults 21 and over only.

Two games will be held the night of the event with only 200 registration slots available (100 players per game). Game times will be assigned to attendees upon arrival at the Museum. The Museum’s Get a Clue event sold out in both 2012 and 2013.

Tickets go on sale December 9 at or by calling 716.896.5200 x359, and are $10 BMS Members or $20 for non-members.
