The Case of the Golden Swan

A mystery awaits its solver! Will you and your friends be able to solve the case of the Golden Swan? In this escape room game you and your friends have 60 minutes to solve the puzzles and find the gold-hoard.

Together with CLU Tku we have put together an escape room in the gorgeous milieu of Vanhalinna. The adventure is best suited for groups of 2-5, but even a group of 10 is possible (note the added cost). You can enjoy the game together with friends, coworkers, or family. Children and teens (aged 6-16) are welcome to play in the company of adults.

No brute force is needed to solve this mystery; only cleverness and teamwork. The escape room’s door is also always unlocked during games so you can exit the space at any time if necessary.

We also sell gift vouchers to the escape room. The voucher costs 95€ and gives access to 2-5 players.

The vouchers can be purchased from the museum’s shop “Hilda’s boutique” during the museum’s opening hours or by contacting us at
