Home>Mystery in the Tuileries: The Louvre Adventure Game

An original game in the heart of the famous Parisian garden from July 7 to August 26, 2018.

This summer, the Louvre invites you to unravel the secrets of André Le Nôtre’s Tuileries Garden in a new and unique adventure game.

What if the Tuileries Garden, a place of discovery and innovation since its inception, had not yet revealed all of its secrets? It would seem that André Le Nôtre, the king’s gardener, designed several mysterious columns shortly before his death. Some say these columns lead to a treasure... With your team of fellow treasure hunters, go in search of it in the heart of this legendary Parisian garden!

The mission
Using an old map, historical engravings, and cryptic letters, solve riddles that will lead you to the heart of the garden to solve the ultimate enigma.

The game
An open-air adventure game, Mystery in the Tuileries invites you to rediscover the garden with new eyes through puzzles that will test your observation skills, lateral thinking, and logic (much like an escape game).

With multiple difficulty levels, it is tailored for both experienced players and beginners alike.

Gain a place in the daily ranking and win museum tickets for you and your team!
