mystery-sliderThe Old Capitol is many things to many people: Mississippi’s most historic space, an architectural gem, and one of the state’s premier history museums. But after hours on January 23, 2014, the building will transform into a crime scene—complete with an outrageous heist, red herrings, and screwball fun—with Mystery Happened Here: An Evening of Intrigue at the Old Capitol.

The event will feature wine and heavy hors d’oeuvres, the opportunity to view one-night-only “artifacts,” and a program by our dinner theater performers, The Detectives.

"Mystery Happened Here will be unlike any other program we've had at the Old Capitol," said Old Capitol director Clay Williams. "We think it will appeal to regular museum-goers as well as people who've never visited the site."

Doors will open for the event at 5:30 p.m., which will end at 8 p.m. Tickets are $40 apiece at 601-576-6920 or by email at
