About
WILDLY ENTERTAINING EXPERIENCES for FRIENDS, FAMILY and CORPORATE EVENTS It all started when we created America's very first murder mystery dinner theater 29 years ago. It was a major hit (and still is). Ever since Mystery Café has been dreaming up incredible experiences for groups of all shapes and sizes. You can take part in a hilarious game show. Become characters in one of our live-actor mystery scavenger events. Try to puzzle your way out of our latest escape room. It's almost more fun than adults should be allowed to have. Almost. Check out our upcoming events in Boston this summer including Clue Live, a murder mystery scavenger hunt in Boston every Saturday and Search the Mansion, solve the crime in Dedham at the MIT Endicott House., or let us bring the excitement to your next corporate gathering. Either way, you're in for an experience you'll never forget.

Tours and Tickets

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Downtown
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
How to get there
  • Downtown Crossing • 3 min walk
  • State • 4 min walk

Cancelled due to the pandemic. We tried cancelling over a month ago, when we knew we wouldn't be travelling to a "hot spot" of Covid-19. Still have not not received a refund to our credit card for the show and hotel.

So Enjoyable!
Mar 2020
Both my husband and I enjoyed the fun, the food and meeting new people. We had so much fun hunting for clues and talking with the actors. They made fun of people and we are still chuckling over some of their comments. The music was also enjoyable, The mansion was beautiful and I wish we could have seen the grounds in the daytime. Parking and getting there was very easy. Well worth the price. The shuttle from the parking lot to the front door was wonderful. The prizes were creative and fun.

Great way to celebrate the BIG 6 oh!
Feb 2020
My family arranged for this evening in honor of my 60th birthday. What a fantastic idea for sure. The meal was delicious. The mansion was an excellent spot for a murder mystery. The best part was how interactive the actors were. They all worked so hard to make everyone feel included and bonded with the visitors. Mrs. White was one of my favorite. She displayed a very outgoing and funny personality. It was just an amazing way to spend an evening with family and friends. I would sure recomend it to anyone looking for a fun filled unusual evening. Good food, time to visit and an exciting interactive activity to get all up and out of their seats.
