Escape the Gaol

9.30AM - 5PM

Saturday 22 September, until Sunday 7 October

*Back by popular demand*

This Spring visit us at the Gaol for an experience exclusively for children during the Victorian school holidays.

Children are invited to participate in Escape the Gaol, an immersive and educational activity aimed at ages six and up.

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.

The Escape the Gaol experience will be available for a very limited time only, from Saturday, September 22 2018 to Sunday, October 7 2018 .

The Old Melbourne Gaol is open daily from 9.30am to 5.00pm, with the exception of Christmas Day and Good Friday.

  • Please note The Escape the Gaol experience is included in your General Admission ticket and is not an adult “Escape Room” style activity.
