MAM After Dark: Mystery

Friday, October 18, 2019, 7 PM–11 PM

Presented by Northwestern Mutual

Can YOU crack the code? Channel your inner detective, and prepare for a night of secret clues and scavenger hunts.  Team up with friends to solve Museum mysteries and unlock exciting prizes, test your taste buds with mystery food and drink tastings, and so much more!

Evening Sponsor: Ernst & Young

All night fun:

  • To think like a detective, you have to dress like one. Put on a classic trench coat and your thinking cap to get ready for a night of sleuthing!

  • It’s no secret that Howl2Go’s Dueling Pianos are big crowd-pleasers. See them perform live, make requests, and dance the night away!

  • Share private messages on scratch paper, and challenge your friends to classic guessing games.

  • Celebrate the opening of First Stage’s new play “On the Wings of a Mariposa” with improv in-gallery performances and a mystical, butterfly-themed scavenger hunt.

  • Sample tasty snacks and hear about a myriad of mysteries and legends with Milwaukee's haunted bar, Shakers.

  • Plus, enjoy all your favorite MAM After Dark activities!
