Mysteries at the Museum

Join us throughout the month of October as you experience the WDM Moose Jaw in a whole new way.

Mystery of the Missing Cats – October 1 – 31

The Mysteries at the Museum activity is an escape room-style puzzle. Sometimes you have to figure out what the puzzle is before solving it for the next location or clue. There are 9 puzzles in total.

Have a pencil ready to write down your answers. Feeling lost? There are hints at the end of the booklet. They are written upside down so you don’t read them accidentally. Use them wisely.

Once the mystery has been solved,  enter to win a Halloween basket prize.

Spot the Black Cat Seek and Find – October 1 – 31

Black cats are on the loose in the Museum! Write down where you saw the black cat images and enter it for a Halloween basket prize. This activity is designed for younger children.

Cabinet of Curiosities Workshop – October 15

Learn about Cabinets of Curiosities and how they spark the sense of wonder of the world, while making connections to modern-day museums including the WDM.
