Virtual Escape Room

Welcome to Goulbourn Museum’s “Survival and Settlement” Online Escape Room experience. The goal of this activity is very simple: to have fun and utilize your puzzle-solving skills, while learning about how the Irish 100th Regiment of Foot settled in Upper Canada. The 100th Irish Regiment of Foot’s settlement experience is very similar to countless others who arrived in early Upper Canada, and this is an interactive way to explore settlement in this region. There are two options for you to play the escape room – an entirely online format using Google applications, or a multimodal format with PDF printouts and a Google Form. The content is identical – the delivery method is up to you! Click on the button above to get started.
