The Gallery of Lost Art
Mr. Guevara, the ackward assistant of the gallery, is meeting you in this misterious gallery of lost art.
The eccentric assistant needs you to help him to discover where is Miró’s masterpiece El Segador, which was stolen on 1937.
Mission Escape does have a great rating on Trip Advisor, so we had high expectations when we arrived at the location. Sadly, we did not really enjoy our game.
We booked The Gallery of Lost Art, which sends you into an art gallery to find one piece of stolen art. Sadly, the room looked like most of the art was stolen and replaced by print outs. And don’t get us wrong, we do understand that not every venue has the resources to build big setpieces, but this art gallery sadly did not impress us at all.
The puzzles or tasks were okay, but we spent most of our gametime wandering through the room(s) to look for the actual puzzles. When we needed a hint, we had to call the gamemaster on an old cellphone we got at the early stages of the game which didn’t work properly either.
All in all, the experience was lacking and the room design was very very basic. Our gamemaster was very nice, but the communication over the cellphone was hard and, quite frankly, annoying. The room is still labeled as “new”, but we doubt that.
At the moment of this review, the website states that they are actually building two new rooms – of course, we did not play them, so this review is just for the Gallery of Lost Art.

We played one room at Mission Escape in Palma de Mallorca – the Gallery of Lost Art. Sadly, the room itself felt very basic and never gave us the feeling that we are in a real Art Gallery. The game itself was also basic and got annoying when you had to call the gamemaster on a mobile phone to get some hints. We wouldn’t recommend that room.
Where can I find them?
Have you ever played this escape game or one of their other rooms? Or can you recommend any other location for us to try? Please let us know in the comment section.
