The Winchendon History and Cultural Center is excited to announce our third escape room, The Toy Maker’s Office is opening on May 4, 2018! 


This room is available to book on Thursday and Friday evenings, Saturdays from 3PM to 9PM, and Sundays from noon to 6PM. 

Winchendon History and Cultural Center
The Isaac Morse House
135 Front Street
Winchendon, MA 01475

Please join us for...

Just another day at the museum... or is it? Unfortunately, things have gone terribly awry, and we need your help!  The Museum Director is away on vacation. One of the volunteers has been trying to hold things together in the Director’s absence, but the pressure was too much. The volunteer went a little berserk trying to get the new exhibit set up in time for the grand opening - a replica of Morton E. Converse's office. He broke a toy rocking horse into pieces – a prized artifact in the museum’s collection – and then locked himself in the bathroom. He refuses to come out and the exhibit is in complete disarray. Can you help us restore order to the museum before the Director returns? 

You have 60 minutes.

You and your teammates are locked inside a room.

Find the clues. Solve the puzzles. Win the game.

Please be aware that this room is located on the second floor and climbing a flight of stairs is required for participation.

This room is also available by special request and for private events. Just send us an email at info@winchendonhistory.com or give us a call at 978-833-3025.

Also, The Moonlight Club - our Secret Society escape room game - is still available to book by special request!

We hope to see you soon!
