Great works of art are considered priceless, but the price of something is most keenly felt when it's gone missing.

In Gallery Heist, you play a team of accomplished detectives. A painting has been stolen, and the local gallery has hired your team. You must recover the painting and solve the mystery: who stole it, and what evidence can you gather against them? Unfortunately for you and your team of crime solvers, you got locked in during all the commotion, adding "find a way out" to your list of tasks.​

You and your teammates will work for about an hour to identify the culprit and retrieve the stolen piece of art.

Get on your Sherlock Holmes hat, brush off your Indiana Jones jacket and come play with us today!

A valuable painting has been stolen from the art gallery, right under the noses of daytime guards. It is up to you to crack the case and bring the culprits to justice. No make matter worse - The gallery manager, lackadaisical in his duties, does not check every room in the expansive gallery and locks you in. No worries, though. Your way out is simple: You just must find the missing artwork and figure out who stole it. 

Feeling a bit dismayed. Just look around you. All the aesthetically appealing artwork is there to view. It is also there to tell a story. In fact, if you want to win your way out, the answers you need are embedded in the artworks themselves. Now get started: You are running against a clock!

Plus, we do not rely on gimmicks like having a lot of combination locks. That is a way to get stale. We set the stage for you to explore plenty of ways to solve each of our rooms to keep everyone engaged and happy along the way. Oh, and if you have already been to Escape Artist DC, do not worry about feeling like you have been there, done that. We frequently update our escape rooms so you can visit us again.
