Watson Weekend

Saturday, August 27 & Sunday, August 28 - 11:00am to 4:00pm

Take on the task of solving the case at everybody’s favourite homestead!

Calling all amateur sleuths! It’s time to put your basic investigatory skills to use at the homestead by taking part in this fun and inexpensive activity that’s great for groups.

Once you receive your first clue, work at your own pace to explore the homestead and help trapper Joe McNamee find his treasure! you'll work together to solve puzzles and follow clues, but if you get stuck, our staff is always willing to help!

This self-guided event, which we would describe as an outdoor escape room, starts at 11:00 AM, and you have until 4:00 PM to finish. Visitors are welcome to start at any point throughout the day until 3:30 PM - don’t worry, the staff will be on hand to help with hints and pointers. Magnifying glasses are optional!
