McCulloch Escape Room

The McCulloch Escape Room is a historically themed immersive adventure game for the whole family and is a part of the McCulloch House Museum & Genealogy Centre in Pictou, Nova Scotia. Located within the museum.

Unlike other escape rooms, success of the McCulloch Escape Room is based purely on the power of the mind.  Each storyline requires thought, sense, and deliberation rather than mere searching in order to escape. 

A successful escape will require you to uncover hidden clues, crack codes, and solve challenging puzzles that lead toward posing a solution to the mystery at hand. But hurry, the clock is ticking.

If you are looking for a reason to get out of the house with family or friends, the McCulloch Escape Room is perfect for you.
