Escape Room Kitty Q
A Quantum Adventure

Key information for your visit

A cute, half-dead cat has vanished! Her trail leads to a mysterious box with four intriguing rooms that arrived at Dresden’s science museum in April 2024.


A famous thought experiment in quantum physics has been transformed into a real-world adventure for youngsters and everyone else who enjoys fun yet challenging puzzles. No need to be a genius in math or physics! Explore the quirky quantum world and find out whether Kitty Q is dead or alive.


Our quantum apartment can be explored in a variety of ways, such as with your school class, as a birthday treat, or with family and friends. Have we sparked your curiosity?
