You Are Cordially Invited to MURDER!

Texarkana, AR – The Texarkana Museums System cordially invites you to take part in a 1940s murder mystery called “The Auction” on March 17, 2018 at the P. J. Ahern Home, 403 Laurel, in Historic Downtown Texarkana. Enjoy dinner and gameplay beginning at 5:00 p.m. Deadline for reservations is March 15. Tickets are on sale now!

An evening of bidding and bloodshed awaits at the P. J. Ahern Home. Following the tragic death of the Baroness Audrey Von Munchen, her famous artifacts are being sold to the highest bidder. We would welcome your presence at this auction and to the reading of her will, but take care! Danger lurks among the auction guests and the highest bid could be for murder. Tickets are limited so buy yours online today!

“This is an auction sure to please winners and losers alike,” said TMS Board President, Velvet Cool. “Guests win an automatic evening of fun.”

Test your sleuthing skills against other guests as you take on the persona of an auction guest or heir to the Baroness. The game is set in the 1940s, so pull out your fedora or best cocktail hat to join the fun. Make a reservation today to receive your character’s biography and special notes on how to play the game along with notes on 1940s costumes. Tickets are $35 per person and are available now on the Ahern Home Facebook page or Eventbrite.

The mystery begins at 5 p.m. at the historic P. J. Ahern Home, 403 Laurel Street in downtown Texarkana, Arkansas. The P. J. Ahern Home is an historic 1905 Classical Revival mansion that hosts programs, lectures, and special events every month. For more information, contact Jamie Simmons, curator at 903-793-4831 or
