The year is 1857 and steam power rules, from the upper echelons of society to the gutters of London’s Old Town. Here in the countryside sits Harrison House, a humble estate with a staff of just 20 servants. Harrison House is home to widow Lady Steeles, her daughter Evangeline, servants and, from time to time, friends and passers-by. Tonight was to be a festive celebration in honour of both of Lady Evangeline Steeles’ 21st birthday and also her engagement to Mr. Bartholemew Payne. A mysterious and priceless gift is delivered to Lady Evangeline – one that carries a dark and powerful secret. But when Mr. Payne is found dead at the bottom of a cliff, the celebration quickly turns into a murder investigation! Who pushed him? Where is the legendary Moonstone? With a cast of characters and lore only found in the Steampunk universe, this mystery is sure to end up hotly debated by suspects and guests alike.

Reviews for A Steampunk Murder Mystery Party

This is the fourth year in a row that we’ve hosted one of your murder mysteries for my birthday and they have always been such a blast! We’ve done the Steampunk, Alice in Wonderland, The Sly Mr. Foxx, and look forward to Murder at the Derby this year. Keep up the good work! We’ll be doing another one next year.

We had so much fun surprising everyone with specialized outfits the day of the Steampunk Murder mystery. My son was the surprise guest and played the part of Mr. Freeman. The game was so much fun-thanks for all your help!
Deb Berger
We had our Steampunk Murder Mystery on Saturday night. It was our best murder mystery yet!

We love doing these murder mysteries as fundraisers for our museum! I’ll be contacting you soon for our next one that we’ll do in March. We’re probably going to do the flapper murder mystery. Waiting to see the makeup of the cast.

Thanks for such great stuff!
