Review:

“Really interesting and there is a great diversity to the displays and themes covered. You definitely need a few hours to have even a quick walk through the whole museum. No trouble spending half a day or more there. Enough to look at for children to enjoy regardless of age. It is a very good overview of Australian culture, history, industry and the natural environment.”Jeremy Dawes

Expedition Escape Rooms an escape room is a physical adventure game in which players are placed into a particularly designed room and must use numerous elements within the room to solve a sequence of puzzles and try to escape within a set time limit. Each room has its own story line and a unique theme, which players must follow in order to gather clues. The clues are designed to be solved in a particular order and should ultimately lead to your escape. Each room requires different forms of pattern recognition, critical thinking  and systematic problem solving. Therefore, to escape each room within the time limit, all players should aim to communicate and work together. Da Vinci’s Secrets and Mission:Identity rooms have been designed in collaboration with Rush Escape Game located in Melbourne. Creativity and coordination is needed to escape each room within a set time limit.
