The Mystery in the Villa interactive adventure, which is organized in cooperation with Mare Temporis Foundation for Historic Traditions that aims to inform all about the historic traditions of 9-19th centuries in an interesting and fun way, will be held on 27 October. The venue will take you back to the Budapest of the previous century, where not only art and poetry boomed but also lawbreaking. In the rapidly developing city the life of the residents was filled with bank robbery and art heist news.
The goal of the adventure is to solve the art heist case which is not an easy job to do, as everyone seem suspicious, including the myterious restaurateur, the know-it-all butler, the talkative housemaid and the rigid soldier.

Date: Saturday, 27 October 2018, 10am-12am, and 1pm-4pm (with a one hour break)
