Escape the Gaol

The Old Melbourne Gaol is offering an immersive and educational experience, Escape the Gaol, exclusively for children these school holidays from Monday 2 July to Sunday 15 July 2018.

Aimed at children aged six and up, Escape the Gaol participants will have the opportunity to become inmates and must explore the Gaol to discover all the necessary clues to create the perfect escape plan, without being discovered by the prison guards.

Each ‘prisoner’ will be given a notebook containing a number of riddles, which must be deciphered in order to receive directions to hidden clues.

Once the clues are discovered, prisoners must secretly hunt through the Gaol to uncover the answers to pull off a fool-proof escape plan.

Tickets to the Old Melbourne Gaol are highly affordable, making the Gaol an attractive option for a fun, family day out during the school holidays.

The Old Melbourne Gaol is open daily from 9:30am to 5:00pm, with the exception of Christmas Day and Good Friday.
