About Escape the Past: The Anatomist

Listed Under Days Out Events

Descend into a world of grave robbery, mystery and malpractice as you embark on a thrilling adventure into Edinburgh’s dark past.

The year is 1829 and fresh bodies for anatomical teaching are in ever short supply. It is your job to investigate the eminent anatomist, Dr Malcolm, who has been procuring bodies for dissection under the cover of darkness and in some very suspicious circumstances.

With exactly one hour before Dr Malcolm returns from lecturing at the nearby Surgeons Hall, you’ll have to work quickly to decipher the ghastly puzzles and cryptic clues hidden within his study, and reveal the gory nature of his crimes. Be sure to keep your wits about you though, the Doctor is back soon and doesn’t take kindly to uninvited guests…

Age 12+
