We received a special invite to visit The Institute for American Indian Studies Museum & Research Center (IAIS) and the launch of their new room - "Wigwam Escape"! IAIS has an incredible museum exhibit which allows visitors to travel through time - displaying astounding artifacts while presenting information on prehistoric to contemporary Native Americans. They have a parking lot available right in front. To further their educational services, IAIS created "Wigwam Escape" - an escape room to challenge the ordinary museum experience. In continuing to preserve and educate the public about pre-contact natives, "Wigwam Escape" allows you to do so though an interactive, stimulating and captivating experience. We were fortunate enough to meet with the program coordinator and the room designer. The level of creativity that was implemented into the storyline, decor, and the puzzle designs really shows the level of passion IAIS and the staff have for their culture. From the customer service provided when you arrive to the lobby area, the staff is extremely kind and professional. The room itself had a fair amount of technology incorporated and the decor provided a realistic, immersive experience. The only concern that "Wigwam Escape" has is that some of the puzzle designs require bending down which could be physically challenging for some people. Other than that, we recommend checking out IAIS and Wigwam Escape for an entertaining AND educational experience!
