7th Annual Murder Mystery – Unsolved Murder at the Chicago World’s Fair (Driehaus Museum, Chicago)

The “Marble Palace” hosts an all new Murder Mystery, this year based on one of the most important events in Chicago’s history…

In 1893, the biggest fair in the world attracted millions of visitors to Chicago. Sadly, some of those people were never heard from again. On the evening of “Chicago Day,” October 9, a small group of 16 revelers were enjoying the fireworks from the roof of the Pabst Casino. One such fellow, Francis Furter, was found dead in a beer barrel the next morning. However, the mysterious case was never solved.

A cold case investigator travels back in time to the first Big Wheel, to the first box of Cracker Jack, to the White City-to the Columbian Exposition of 1893. Come one, come all to the Chicago World’s Fair! This is one for the history books…

Your ticket includes a reception of cocktails and hors d’oeuvres followed by a three-course dinner in the historic Ballroom. Period attire is highly encouraged but not required. Guests must be 21 years of age. Advanced ticket purchase is required.

Proceeds from the Murder Mystery support programming at the Driehaus Museum.

Murder Mystery is presented in partnership with Get Away with Murder Productions.

Ticket Refund Policy:  Tickets are fully refundable up to 10 days prior to the event, 50% refundable up to 72 hours prior to the event and non-refundable less than 72 hours prior to the event.

Avelina De Moray and the Black Friday Clutch


The first video Avelina recalls watching of Black Friday, was her “10 Un-Goth Confessions” TAG. Freyja’s lovable yet quirky personality & witty dialogue had Avelina instantly hooked. With almost 500,000 fans worldwide agreeing, hitting that subscribe button on her insanely popular Youtube Channel is a no brainer!

Hailing from New Zealand (only a short boat ride away from Avelina in Australia), Black Fridaynow resides in Germany with her husband, where she will continue on her path towards world domination.

Avelina is incredibly proud to have created what will become Black Friday’s FIRST official piece of merchandise.

Visit the Museum of Death!

The World Famous Museum of Death was founded in June, 1995, originally located in San Diego’s 1st mortuary in a building once owned by Wyatt Earp. Evolving from the controversial art gallery the Rita Dean, founders JD Healy and Cathee Shultz realized the void in the death education in this country and decided to make death their life’s work.

Reopened in Hollywood, California, the Museum of Death houses the world’s largest collection of serial murderer artwork, photos of the Charles Manson crime scenes, the guillotined severed head of the Blue Beard of Paris (Henri Landru), original crime scene and morgue photos from the grisly Black Dahlia murder, a body bag and coffin collection, replicas of full size execution devices, mortician and autopsy instruments, pet death taxidermy, and so much more!

Also on display are videos of autopsies and serial killers, the Heaven’s Gate Cult recruiting video, and the infamous Traces (not Faces) of Death video, all real (not re-enacted) death footage.

The Museum of Death is a self guided tour, lasting approximately 45 minutes to an hour, but those who can stomach it stay as long as they like. The movies run for hours.

We’re located at 6031 Hollywood Blvd. in Hollywood. Admission is $15 per person.

There is no age limit for the Museum of Death, because WE ALL DIE, but we STRONGLY recommend MATURE AUDIENCES! There have been a number of falling down ovations (people passing out) at the museum (mostly men)… so we stress that you should be prepared for a good dose of reality!
