Mysterious disappearances and mind-bending puzzles surround a manuscript rumored to contain Sir Isaac Newton’s recipe for the philosophers’ stone. This mystery can only be solved with some archival detective work. Test your skills at our Escape the Room game, browse selected materials from our collections, and chat with our librarians and archivists. You won’t want to miss this exclusive peek at our archives!

This event is free, but registration is required. Please note that the Escape the Room activity is first-come, first-served for groups up to eight people. Sign-up will be available at the check-in table when you arrive. All attendees are welcome to browse the pop-up displays and enjoy light refreshments regardless of participation in the Escape the Room game.
