Museum Pictura inserts you as curator of some of History’s most iconic works of art. This game has a unique theme with plenty of opportunities for ancillary learning. Each painting card includes the name of the painting, the date it was painted, the medium used, painting dimensions, and where the painting currently resides. On top of that, the choices you make throughout the game make thematic sense as you decide which paintings to feature in your collection!

Game Overview

Your goal is to create collections of some of History’s most iconic works of art. To do so, you will be acquiring Painting cards and exhibiting them into your Museum, represented by your player board, to create Collections. These Collection can be based either on the painting’s Period (ranging from the Renaissance period all the way to Impressionism), or its Domain (Historical, Landscape, Mythological…). The Collections you create will earn you Prestige points, and the player with the most Prestige at the end of the game wins.
