To modern-day sleuths, solving a mystery in a palace may seem like a pipe dream. However, if you love cracking codes and happen to be in London this summer, you’re in luck. For a few months, Buckingham Palace‘s public art gallery will be transformed into an elaborate escape room inspired by Leonardo da Vinci, one of art history’s most mysterious figures.

Set in the Queen’s GalleryLeonardo Artmergency! is an escape room with a creative twist. In order to solve a case of a missing curator, amateur detectives will need to “think like a Renaissance genius to unlock the mysteries in Leonardo’s drawings.” Fortunately, figuring out the game’s thematic puzzles and riddles doesn’t require a degree in Renaissance art. In fact, careful observation, creative thinking, and a bit of savvy sleuthing are all you need to be successful.

Organized by the Royal Collection Trust in collaboration with History Mystery, Leonardo Artmergency! coincides with Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing. Intended to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the artist’s death, this landmark spectacle comprises 12 simultaneous exhibitions in institutions across the United Kingdom. Totaling 144 pieces, the collection on-view at these locations reflects the full range of Leonardo’s interests, including “painting, sculpture, architecture, music, anatomy, engineering, cartography, geology and botany.” And now, with a bit of mystery in the mix, this event truly captures the artist’s legacy.

Case closed!

Have you ever dreamed of solving a mystery in an opulent place like a palace? If so, you’re in luck! Now through October 5, 2019, the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace will host Leonardo Artmergency!, a Leonardo da Vinci escape room.
