In the Hall of Portraits, meet Daphne—the brave, fashion savvy member of the gang. Comb through moving eye portraits to discover the villain’s hidden control panel that creates spooky illusions. In the Villain’s Tinkering Workshop, work alongside Fred, the group’s calm and collected leader, to build a trap for the villain. Green glowing clues appear to help along the way! Shaggy and his lovable canine pal SCOOBY-DOO™ can be found in the kitchen of course, where families participate in the iconic ghost chase and create many more delicious memories. No mystery can be solved without the help of tech-savvy Velma in the library music room. Solve a musical puzzle on the organ and use the Clue Analyzer to get a visual of the villain.

“We are excited to partner with Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment to create the multigenerational SCOOBY-DOO™ exhibit. It highlights what we value at The Children’s Museum. It is not only a fun challenge for our visitors, but it provides a unique educational experience,” said Jennifer Pace Robinson, president and CEO, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. “SCOOBY-DOO™ and Mystery Inc. teach families and children that with teamwork, courage, and ingenuity, even the toughest mysteries can be solved.”

Be sure to gather the family around for a photo op that all generations will enjoy–a photo with The Mystery Machine! The Mystery Machine, on loan from Warner Bros. Archives, was one of four that were initially made for the live-action movies SCOOBY-DOO (2002) and SCOOBY-DOO 2: MONSTERS UNLEASED (2004).
