Forensic Night 

Become an honorary detective as you explore what law enforcement, doctors and anthropologists can learn by examining human skeletons! 

Saturday, October 20th

  • Group One: 5:00 pm - 6:45 pm

  • Group Two: 7:00 pm - 8:45 pm

The evening begins with a guided tour of SKELETONS: Museum of Osteology. Then, through a hands-on activity, learn to "read" the features of a human skull to determine: age, sex, physical trauma and/or illness.

PLEASE NOTE: The activity involves replica human skulls cast from real investigations. Personal discretion is advised.


Guided Tour & Forensic Investigation

This event focuses on identifying sexual dimorphism in human skulls and the three types of physical trauma-- blunt force, sharp force and ballistic (gunshot). With six unique cases to examine, each case number is designed for teams of 2-5. You may be paired with another group if your team is less than 5 people.

Reserve Your Case!
