Art of Escape


Australian National Maritime Museum

Let us tell you about transforming museums into adventurous, mind-changing, magical escape games, that turn the museum experience into something completely different. How is magic related to escape rooms? How can an escape game function as immersive storytelling? How can all this take place within the museum’s spaces – and how does it transform the visitors’ experience of the museum? A unique collaboration between the Israel Museum and Escape Artist Magus Cagliostro has made this magic possible.
