Crisp Museum Hosting ‘Escape the Museum’ Nov. 14-15, 21-22


The Rosemary Berkel and Harry L. Crisp II Museum at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus is hosting its second annual “Escape the Museum” Nov. 14-15 and 21-22.

Sessions start on the hour, and are scheduled from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Nov. 14 and 21, and from 1-4 p.m. Nov. 15 and 21. Groups are limited to six participants.

These events are free and open to ages 10 and up. Face coverings will be required, and social distancing guidelines will be in place.

During this murder mystery inspired event, visitors will pretend to be locked in the Crisp Museum and must solve a series of puzzles, problems and obstacles before time runs out to solve the case and escape the museum.

Guests must register individually by Nov. 7.

The Crisp Museum is located in the Cultural Arts Center at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus, located at 518 S. Fountain St. in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.
