There's a secret formula hidden within the artworks of Amsterdam's world-famous Rijksmuseum. Grab your favorite mystery-solving hat, a group of friends, and follow devilishly devious clues hidden throughout the museum's 8,747 treasures and masterpieces. The game's afoot!

The all-new Rijksmuseum Escape Game takes escape rooms to the next level, with an entirely new way to engage with art. You'll be tasked with solving the mysterious disappearance of a page from 18th-century alchemist Alessandro Cagliostro's book.

Armed with only your wits and a few clues, you'll traverse the magnificent halls of The Rijksmuseum, scanning the masterful artworks for the little details that only eagle-eyed detectives will spot.

A kid-friendly version is available as well, so everyone gets to join in the fun. You'll laugh, gasp, and fall in love with art all over again.

But will you crack the case?

Heel leuk om zo door het museum te lopen. Van een escape is geen sprake en de makkelijke versie is iets te makkelijk (zes puzzeltjes in totaal).

Mooie uitdaging, maar te druk.

fantastische game. Een leuke en gezellige dagje Rijksmuseum. Mijn zoonte van 11 heeft er ook van genoten, terwijl hij niets van musea moet hebben, Volgende keer weer.
