Whodunit? exhibition

The crime scene is a zoo, a security guard has been shot and a prized white rhino has been stolen. Can you help solve this crime? Whodunit? is open daily in the Scitech BHP Billiton Exhibition Gallery from 15 May - 8 October.

Armed with a crime file, Whodunit? allows visitors to use forensic science such as finger-printing, chromatography, autopsies, footprints and DNA samples to gather evidence and solve a murder mystery.

And if you enjoy solving the crime in Whodunit? you can continue the learning at home with our CSI At Home videos! Help your junior forensic scientist learn about fuming fingerprints, spatter patterns, paper chromatography and DNA extraction using materials and ingredients from around the house.

Whodunit? is open daily in the BHP Billiton Exhibition Gallery. It is recommended for children aged 8yrs+. Parental guidance is advised as this exhibition contains a simulated dead body.
