The Four States Auto Museum located at 217 Laurel Street is the place to be on Saturday, January 29, 6 PM, for an evening of fun, food, and murder hosted by the Texarkana Museums System.

“Vroom, Vroom, Vroom Murder Mystery,” is going to be a 1920s-themed murder mystery dinner. Travel back in time to the roaring 20s and enjoy vintage classic cars, dinner, and of course, someone will be murdered. The question is, will you be the victim or the murderer? You'll find out when you arrive!

Everyone is encouraged to come dressed in 1920s costumes to reflect the theme of the party but not required.

“Half the fun of these murder mysteries is that you won’t know if you are the murder victim until you arrive,” explains TMS Curator, Jamie Simmons. “Even if you are the victim, you can still listen in and investigate the crime as a ghost!”

The Plot

It’s the height of the Prohibition era and two rival bootleggers play a dangerous game that leads to someone being murdered. Guests will play a variety of characters, from criminals to investigators and everyone is considered a suspect until the mystery is solved.
