It seems that most of the reviews on this page are for a completely different show offerered by this company, however another option they have is a weekend long extravaganza at the Architect's Inn in Newport. My girlfriend and I just went, and this was honestly the best weekend getaway we've been on. I don't want to spoil anything, but... More

I came for the christmas murder at the musuem and really enjoyed my time! The actors were very interactive and the costuming was very cool for the Victorian theme. It was fun to search for clues and be able to interact with the characters directly. Would recommend for people of all ages- the kids that were in our group had... More

I've lived here for a year and had been looking forward to checking it out. I brought a guest visiting over CHristmas. Absolutely awful. We were all corraled into a room with folding chairs. A very large crowd, maybe 150 people. Music coming through speakers - loud overall din between the people and the 'actors' walking around saying nothing we... More

My family spent the weekend in Newport for Christmas and we decided to check out Murder at the Museum. I was really looking forward to it. I have only done one Murder Mystery before and I had a blast. This was a huge disappointment. The actors didn't appear to have a script and seemed to make it up as they... More

My company has participated in two murder mysteries and both times were fantastic. I was a little hesistant at first as I wasn't sure how our financial service folks would react and if they would get into it or not. It was a slow start as our folks were more interested in drinking at first, but as they got loosened... More

If you are looking for something to do with your date, that isn't just another movie night.... then this is for you! We enjoyed the Murder that was hosted by the Newport Art Museum. It was delightful, and fun. We got up to dance along with the characters, It was lovely, thanks all for a great night out.

I always wanted to go to a murder msytery party, and this one being in an art msueum at night that was also a historic mansion, I thought it would be cool. Well it was lame and kinda boring. The theme was a Masquerade Ball and the actors played famous socialites of the Gilded Age. The lady playing Mrs. Astor... More

I attended the Newport Murder Mystery at Belcourt Castle last week and it was SO much fun. The cast gave a great performance. They were engaging and funny with the kids and adults. You get to wander around the mansion looking for clues to the murder and question the actors before meeting up at the end to find out who... More
