Mysterious disappearances and mind-bending puzzles surround a manuscript rumored to contain Sir Isaac Newton’s recipe for the philosophers’ stone. This mystery can only be solved with some archival detective work. Test your skills at our Escape the Room event, browse our collections, and chat with our librarians and archivists. You won’t want to miss this exclusive peek at our archives!
