Buckingham Palace is commemorating the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death with an expansive new exhibition featuring over 200 of the artist’s works. To take the installation one step further, fans can even take part in the palace’s first-ever escape room themed around his pieces.

On view now at The Queens Gallery, the Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing exhibition marks the largest of its kind to house da Vinci’s work in more than 65 years. To coincide with this historic moment, the venue has challenged visitors to “think like a Renaissance genius” in a game of riddles and puzzles conceived in partnership with History Mystery. Guests will have an hour try to solve the mystery as they explore four different rooms and, according to the guidelines, no art history knowledge is required — simply, “creative thinking” and “careful observation.”

The “Escape Room: Leonardo Artmergency!” experience is happening now until October 5, 2019 and open to teams of at least four to eight people, aged 14 years old and up. Tickets, which were priced at £150 GBP (approximately $190 USD) per group, are currently sold out but visit the Royal Collection Trust’s website for updates on future openings.
