April 6 to June 2, 2024


The event

The game runs from April 6 to June 2, 2024.

The game and access to the Museums (permanent collections) are free upon reservation, subject to availability, on each Museum’s website.

If you haven’t been able to obtain a free ticket, it’s possible to play the game by purchasing an admission ticket at current prices.

For the Tuileries Gardens, we recommend that you reserve a timeslot as there may be large numbers of others wanting to play, but it isn’t obligatory.

Although they all revolve around a common plot, the adventures are independent and the puzzles completely different.

So you can take part in 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 game(s) as you wish!

For the most inquisitive players, completing all 5 surveys offers a bonus: an additional riddle will crown the 5 adventures and reveal a secret content.

Armed with your game booklet and your pencil, you’re on your own to carry out the investigation in each venue.

You can print out your booklet (in color) at home, or you can pick one up onsite at the reception area dedicated to the game.

Seven puzzles per Museum are waiting for you. You can solve them in whatever order you like.

Remember, though, Museum staff can’t help you find the solutions!

The passport is your collector's book of the 5 museums, and proof of your participation.

At the end of each survey, you can stamp your passport with the image of the museum you've visited. It's your way of collecting medals!

You can collect up to 5 stamps and solve the final riddle!

The passport can be downloaded from this website, or picked up at the dedicated reception area in each museum.

The survey is aimed at all families, for children aged 7 and over.

Adults and teenagers are of course welcome to play too!

The game can be played in French or English; children must be accompanied.

The survey can be played by 1 to 6 people, for your own enjoyment and in compliance with museum regulations (beyond that, you'll be considered a group).

One person can take up to 6 places when booking.


For each of the 5 surveys, you will find on this site the link to the museum's registration page. A quota of free tickets is available each day.

Beyond that, you'll still be able to play the game by buying a ticket online.

All validated reservations will be lost if not used.

Museums are accessible to PRMS. To find out about the accessibility features of each museum, consult the "practical information" page.

The game booklets have been designed with Luciole and Tahoma fonts, suitable for the visually impaired and dyslexic.
