Can you solve a murder mystery on the high seas? Find out at this interactive and immersive experience.

A new decade has begun and it’s officially the ’20s again, which is an excellent excuse to indulge in a little roaring ’20s style, glamour and drama. Put those sleuthing skills you’ve honed from bingeing too many true crime podcasts to good use and play your part in solving a murder mystery at sea at The Great Ratsby, the latest iteration of the Maritime Museum’s popular Murder Mystery at Sea series. 

Beginning at a ritzy party aboard the SY Ena, one of the finest Edwardian steam yachts in the world, you’ll be embroiled in a drama set in mid-1920s Sydney, where gangsters mix with the party before a body is discovered in the harbour. A policeman then arrives and guests assist in an investigation that leads through the murky underground of the Sydney docks – from the wharf into the museum, back of house and the loading dock – on the hunt for clues. 

The Great Ratsby will run for six nights only with two sessions per evening, and be warned – the two previous seasons of Murder Mystery at Sea did sell out, so you'll need to act fast to snag your ticket. This over-18s experience is an excellent opportunity to break out some fierce vintage fashion, but be prepared to get a little dirty (perhaps best to leave that heirloom shawl from nan at home).
