The Helicopter Museum in Weston-super-Mare is hosting a murder mystery event.


There have been a few suspect characters at The Helicopter Museum in Weston-super-Mare recently, and its staff are asking for the public’s help to solve a mystery at the attraction.

The tourist attraction, in Locking Moor Road, is hosting a Murder At The Museum event on July 2.

The museum’s marketing assistant Peter Michallat said: “Families who visit the museum will be able to try their hands at amateur sleuthing.

“They will be interrogating a host of suspicious characters, solving puzzles, conducting forensic examinations and hunting for clues to discover the whereabouts of our curator who has mysteriously gone missing.”

The event will run from 10am-4pm and there will also be a flight simulator, open cockpits and charity stalls at the attraction.

Families who successfully solve the crime will be given a certificate when the culprit is finally unmasked at the end of the day.
