Reign & Rebellion Immersive Special Event ‘WHO CONSPIRES?’ Returns to Jamestown Settlement After Dark on May 26 & 27 and June 2 & 3 – for ages 12 and up!
“WHO CONSPIRES?” is an immersive escape-room murder-mystery that plays out in the museum’s re-created 1610-14 fort after dark, 8-9:15 p.m. As the sun sets, ticketed guests can race against the clock to explore three re-created buildings to solve puzzles, question suspects and seek clues to solve a mystery and protect the fort.
The special event, which debuted in November, features a new mystery, suspects and a mix of old and new puzzles. It is among a series of public lectures, after-hours performances and interactive events that complement Reign & Rebellion exhibition at Jamestown Settlement and the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown. Reign & Rebellion, on display through September 5, explores Virginia through the lens of the Stuart monarchy and its impact and influence in early America on the struggles of those who lived in the colony in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Reign & Rebellion special programs are sponsored by Dominion Energy and supported in part by the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, Inc. Annual Fund.
