Mindbender Mansion

Exhibiton Extended Through September 7, 2020


Enter the wonderfully puzzling world of Mindbender Mansion, an eclectic place full of puzzles and interactive challenges guaranteed to put your brainpower to the test. Team up with your friends and family as you gather hidden clues and secret passwords scattered throughout the various thematic rooms of the house to solve the mystery.

  • Race the clock to answer trivia questions by hopping on letters that light up. 
  • Collaborate with a team to tilt a table in different directions in this larger-than-life version of the steel ball labyrinth game.
  • Try to stay calm while filling dinner trays as fast as you can in a moving conveyor belt.

Everyone will enjoy solving the 11 individual brainteasers and the three group activities in this fun and unconventional exhibition.

The challenges begin the minute you enter the mansion!


Mindbender Mansion is open from January 25 to April 19, 2020 September 7th, 2020, and is included with admission to the Fleet Science Center. 

Produced and toured by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, Portland, Oregon.
Mindbender Mansion is generously sponsored in part by The Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation.
