Rijksmuseum Escape Game: the secret formula

Due to great success the Rijksmuseum Escape Game can be played again during Christmas Holidays.

It is long past closing time when Rijksmuseum employee Bert realises that he is not alone. He sees a shadow in the museum library. After a futile pursuit and further investigation, it turns out that a page containing a special formula has disappeared from the ancient book by Italian sorcerer and alchemist Alessandro Cagliostro.

The logo is based on a wood engraving by Isaac Weissenbruch, Menselijk oog met een afwijking, 1832 -1912.

This is the start of an exciting Escape Game. Are you going to make sure that the secret formula remains safe?

Thrilling adventure

In this Escape Game, you’ll experience the Rijksmuseum together in a unique way. The game can be played at two levels: together with friends, or with children ages 6 and up. Together with 2 to 5 people, you jump into the game and get to work as an investigator. A thrilling adventure for everyone, but only a few will reach the finish line. Will you succeed? Book quickly: the game can be played this summer only!

The Escape Game has been created in collaboration with Wonders.do by Cagliostro and Royal Talens.
