Tiny Tombs Portal 2022 copy.jpg

The Mystery of the Tiny Tombs is a free, self-guided adventure through New Orleans.  The public is invited to discover locations of Tiny Tombs installed in museums, businesses, and historical sites, meeting extraordinary locals---and perhaps a ghost or two---along the way

How do I play?

The Hunt for Tiny Tombs is free. The 2023 Site Guide may be obtained HERE. The complete Case Folder is available HERE.


Assemble your investigative team.

The Mystery of the Tiny Tombs is more fun investigated as a team, so gather your wittiest friends about you.  If your friends are not particularly witty, be sure that they are at least well dressed: prizes will be showered upon those with the handsomest disguises.  For consideration, tag your mugshots #nolatinytombs.

Lace up those adventure shoes.

Tiny Tombs are appearing in all manner of locations, with all manner of business hours.  Most Tiny Tombs are accessible within a 15-minute walk of the St. Charles Streetcar line.  You would do well to verify hours of suspected sites before arriving.  With few exceptions, Tiny Tomb locations are free and openly accessible to the public.  For institutions requiring tickets, players are responsible for purchasing their own.  

PLEASE NOTE: Solving the mystery does NOT require moving or removing the Tiny Tombs. 


Be courteous.  This adventure depends on the kindness of strangers and the generous indulgence of hosting institutions. Visibly intoxicated guests will not be permitted access. Those behaving in an untoward fashion will be exiled with relish, and served on baguette.
