How to play: Heist at the Museum
You are an art burglar who has just scored your dream day job: A museum security guard. By day, you protect the museum’s priceless artworks while planning to sneak inside during the night and steal them. The museum has some mind-boggling security systems installed, but during the day you can gather everything you need to bypass them.
It should be your easiest heist to date – but there’s a problem: All your co-workers are art burglars trying to steal the artworks too! And if they know you stole it, they’ll surely snitch.
You better not attract too much attention to pull off your HEIST AT THE MUSEUM!
Give us a cheer!
While our Tantrum FleX ensemble were all very excited to create this game for you, some of them have felt a little sad that they missed out on an opportunity for a live performance. Please help us in congratulating them for their hard work!

The Story of Heist at the Museum
Initially conceptualised as an interactive performance at Newcastle’s Civic Theatre, the creative journey of this project reflects the chaotic nature of life in 2020-21. By instilling a sense of homeliness throughout the theatre, the artists wanted to interrogate their audience’s preconceptions regarding cultural ownership. When the pandemic moved the ensemble online, they instead turned their attention to play: “Heist at the Museum” disrupts the formality of cultural institutions, thus positing that art is a collective and playful experience.
