Escape Room Fun
Star of the Republic Museum invites visitors to unlock history with new Texas-themed escape room
The Blinn College District’s Star of the Republic Museum invites visitors to put on their thinking caps and find their way out of the museum’s newest attraction – a Texas-themed escape room.
“Runaway Scrape Escape” is a physical adventure game based on historical events during the Texas Revolution. Players have 45 minutes to solve a series of logic games and “escape” from the approaching Mexican Army led by the infamous Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna.
“This is a family-friendly attraction that encourages teamwork and communication among players,” said Lisa Berg, Curator of Education. “It is a fun way to learn about an important yet overlooked historical event that happened during the Texas Revolution.”
The Escape Room is open from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on the third Saturday of each month through December to kids ages 10 and up and is designed for families or a group of children in cooperation with at least one adult.
Admission is $15 for adults, $13 for students ages 18 and under, and $10 for Blinn employees and students. Advanced registration is recommended, although walk-ins are accepted based on availability.

The museum is located off Highway 105 between Brenham and Navasota on FM 1155 at Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site. Daily museum hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, visit www.starmuseum.org.
