Hydropolis Center for Ecological Education
Hydropolis is an extraordinary place - a center of knowledge about water combined with a modern form of the exhibition. The museum is located in a 19th-century underground tank of clean water, which served its function until the 21st century.
Through the use of modern multimedia technologies, interactive installations, replicas, and models, MPWiK - the manager of the museum, wants to show water from different perspectives and convey to the recipients how valuable it is.Read more >>
Especially for this occasion, we are building two dedicated scenarios. Contestants will have to go through two 20-minute escape rooms as quickly as possible. The story will be a continuation of the plot from the ER Champ 2023 eliminations.
