“Deadwood Saloon" Murder Mystery Night
February 7 - 8 and 14 - 16, 2014
The Museum of Aviation experienced a “blow-out” weekend February 7-9 with three major events bringing in hundreds of visitors to the Winter Wonderfest, Night at the Museum and a Mystery Dinner Theater. Real snow was “blown-in” to two snow slides, one 10 feet tall and 65-feet long and kids had a blast going down in inter tubes. The other events on Saturday included a 5K race, snow rides around the Museum grounds, a vendor fair, pancake breakfast and a chili cook-off. The snow fun continued on Sunday afternoon.
The Night at the Museum held Friday and Saturday night drew 386 people. Volunteers in costume filled the Century of Flight and Scott Exhibit Hangars and brought the Museum to life with people like Amelia Earhart, Albert Einstein and Rosie the Riveter. The fun was mixed in with science and history lessons.
Following the Night at the Museum on Friday and Saturday, Hangar One was turned into the “Deadwood Saloon” where the dinner guests had to guess “who done it.” Both nights drew over 100 patrons. The “Deadwood Saloon" Murder Mystery Night will be held again on Friday and Saturday nights (February 14 & 15) from 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm and on Sunday February 16 starting at 1:00 pm.
