Mystery at the Lux Museum
Which number do you need a hint for?
We’re here to help! Tell us which stanza in the poem you’re stuck on.
Ah yes, the missing dinosaur tooth. Take a look in the dinosaur room. Is there a dinosaur missing a tooth? Now, look in the museum guide. Is there a diagram of a dinosaur mouth? Which letter is assigned to the tooth that the dinosaur is missing?
The Lux family tree is tricky. There are two clues: the family tree picture and the Lux family history in the museum guide. Each family member is mentioned in the guide. Some clues will tell you exactly who each painting is of. Others will have to be derived. You’ll have the most luck writing the names of the family members over their pictures. Eventually, you’ll find there’s one family member not written on your family tree. That’s the queen. The clue is the first letter of her first name.
Yeah … this one’s a toughie. First, you’ll need to line up Sven, Oliver and Franc on the museum map in the statue places facing the south window. Next, as the poem asks, shine a light from the south window through the statues so that the light shines on one of the letters on Franc’s shield. Which statue is placed first in the line? Read the page about the statues in the museum guide. Good luck!
Stuck on the string puzzle? No worries! This one just takes time and patience. First, cut out the pictures from the stamp book. Then, try and place the stamps in the portrait room so that you connect tone of the balloons to the girl. Only one of the balloons will connect to the girl and the clue is the balloon color (R for red, G for Green, B for blue). One way to attack this puzzle would be to try building the string from each balloon.
Sounds like you’re stuck with the translation puzzle? You’re not alone. The goal is to figure out which letter is the cat. You’ve been provided two tools for this one: a picture of the language room and a translation wheel. Try different combinations of letters and symbols until you can spell real words based on what’s on the cave wall in the picture. The clue is the letter that ties to the cat symbol. Good luck!
This puzzle is tricky. There are horns all throughout the museum – unicorns in pictures, dangerous animals, dinosaurs and even musical instruments. Piece together the museum map and then write the number of horns on each room. Starting with one, trace a line from one to four in order. The line will make the shape of a letter.
This one may be the hardest puzzle in the poem. First, you’ll need to place Penelope in the middle of the museum map. Next you’ll need to shine a light down onto her statue, creating a shadow. Lastly, read her page in the museum guide. Make sure the statue of her head is on Frog Island and the shadow of her sword is on Blake island and then look to see where the light shines from her heart. The letter of that island is your answer!
Ah, the last stanza! This puzzle is fun one. You’ll need two things: The mask wheel and the picture of the music room with masks on the wall. There are three patterns of masks on the wall. For each pattern, figure out the fourth mask and the feature that makes up the pattern. Then, build the mask on the mask wheel using those features. After you’ve constructed the mask, look across from it and you’ll see the letter that was created. Heads up: The second row of masks has two patterns going on while the others have just one.
