Like a dinner party murder mystery, an upcoming event features lies and intrigue, but without the morbid element.
The Royal B.C. Museum’s Artifact or Artifiction event returns, with party-goers squaring off against museum curators, collections managers and archivists, to decide whether stories told about 20 of the museum’s strangest items are true or false.
Proceeds from the evening go toward educational programs, exhibits and research.
Last year’s event raised $90,000.
News anchor Tony Parsons will emcee the Oct. 6 event. Tickets, $150, are available at www.royalbcmuseum.bc.ca/gala or by calling 250-387-7222.
