Murder By Gaslight Philadelphia

A Walking Tour Murder Mystery

Every Friday, Saturday, and Sundays April 24 - September 5

$20 per ticket

You will be tasked with inspecting the crime scene, gathering the clues, and questioning the suspects you meet along the way. And perhaps, just perhaps, you can stay one step ahead of a wily murderer, avoid a similar fate, and have a chance to solve a - MURDER BY GASLIGHT!

The walk is about an hour long, so wear comfortable shoes!  There will be a series of stops along the way, where you will be able to access clues via the magic of QR codes (but we have you covered if your phone isn't QR friendly!)  At each stop you will encounter suspects, played by professional actors.  They will act out scenes that will provide more clues to help you solve the mystery!

"Me, my wife and some friends did the tour last night and found it to be a fantastic time. I liked walking around the historical portion of the city and the actors were funny and spectacular. I highly recommend doing this as it is a fun night for friends and family!"

Grab some friends, get outside, and solve a murder in Philadelphia!  Join us for a historical walking tour with a murderous twist!
