Fort Nelson

Mystery at the Fort

February half term activities
18th February - 10:00 am - 22nd February - 4:00 pm

Calling all junior super sleuths! This February half term we’re following in the footsteps of the great Victorian detective Sherlock Holmes.

The author and famous Portsmouth resident, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, mentions ‘a Fort along the hill’ (which we believe may be Fort Nelson) in his Sherlock Holmes’ story The Five Orange Pips.

Inspired by these local links we’ve created our own Victorian mystery, so get your magnifying glasses and deerstalker hats ready, and come hunt down the clues and solve the puzzles that will unravel the mysterious case of Ran-Tan Tommy.

Our Mystery at the Fort game is suitable for ages 5 – 10 (adult supervision is required at all times).
£3.50 per child
There are sessions throughout the day:
11am / 12 noon / 2pm / 3pm
Numbers are limited to 16 children per session. Please book on arrival at the museum.
