When I was a kid, I played a ton of the game Museum Madness. An old MECC game that was all about learning various subjects, solving cool puzzles, and enjoying the point-and-click adventure world. Unfortunately, the company eventually went under, leaving the game as Abandonware. Getting this old game to run isn’t terrible on Windows 7, but unless you know your way around DosBox or a command line interface, your average user may run into trouble. To fix this problem, I created a double-click-to-run Museum Madness launcher. All of my code is open source and freely available, the game itself is kind of under a grey-ish abandonware type license, so I’m not entirely sure if you can deconstruct it. I grabbed the game data from, who host a TON of abandoned games, go check it out. In the mean time, here’s the game:

GitLab Repo

Windows XP/7 x86 and x64 - You can try it on other Window’s platforms, I haven’t tested it though.

Linux x64

Want it ported to a different system? Do it, send me a pull request.
