Claudia knew that she could never pull off the old-fashioned kind of running away… so she decided not to run FROM somewhere, but TO somewhere. And so, after some careful planning, she and her younger brother, Jamie, escaped– right into a mystery that made headlines! This it the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where the youngsters, siblings Claudie and Jamie set up home amongst the old artefacts – if you know the Museum, can you work out which was the fancy bed that they occupied?
