Saskatchewan museum looks for help to crack code on mystery safe

news-update

A Saskatchewan museum is calling on safe crackers to help them unlock a mystery.

The Civic Museum of Regina is looking for people to figure out the combination of a historic safe that's been locked up in its collection for 18 years.

Rob Deglau is the museum's community outreach co-ordinator, and says the safe was manufactured in 1901 and donated by a family who used to run the old Regina Furniture Company.

He says staff were recently going through museum inventory and realized the safe wasn't functional because it was still locked.

The museum doesn't know the combination and put out a call on Facebook asking for help to crack it.

Deglau says staff have received calls from across Canada, but so far no one has offered a solution.
