Puzzle Room: Quest for Conviction 

Be a part of a brand new experience at the GRPM! The Puzzle Room: Quest for Conviction gives groups one hour to search a simulation of the Museum’s Archives, solving puzzles, finding clues and creating a display of evidence to achieve conviction.

Visitors will go on a quest unique only to the Museum and its Collections to convict local 1910s dentist Arthur Waite for the famous Peck Murders in Grand Rapids. Inside the Puzzle Room, there are multiple challenges that take teamwork, communication and investigative skills to uncover, unlock and find the right pieces of evidence to convict the murderer before time runs out.
