"Leaving the Station" is one of the two escape rooms at the Heritage Village Museum you can try.

If you want to learn a little bit more about local history and solve some fun puzzles along the way, the Heritage Village Museum in Sharonville is bringing back its escape room series for the season.

"Escape the Village" consists of two unique escape-room challenges set in an authentic historic building with 19th-Century artifacts. 

One escape room, “Leaving the Station,” takes place inside the Chester Park Train Station and is based on the first train robbery in the United States, which happened in North Bend on May 5, 1865. You’ll get clues from the station agent to help you get into the office and telegraph for help before time runs out.

And “Morgan’s Raiders of the Lost Art” is an art heist based on Confederate general John Hunt Morgan’s raid of the Cincinnati area in 1863. In the escape room, it’s your job to find the art they stole and stashed away in the General Store before Morgan’s men return for it.

The escape rooms happen on the third Saturday of every month from March to September. There are three time slots for each room: noon, 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. Each room can accommodate four to eight people, and admission is $25 per person.

The Heritage Village Museum is located behind the Sharon Centre in Sharon Woods. You may need a Great Parks of Hamilton County permit in order to get into the park.
