This was an Adult/Child hunt through the Metropolitan Museum of Art, searching for images resembling characters from the Harry Potter Books/Movies. Although it was a whirlwind tour of the museum, it generated interests that after the hunt, we went back to several areas to look...More

We're so glad you enjoyed the hunt! Our Murder Hunts are some of our hardest and we find that larger teams generally do better on the hunt. But we definitely have smaller teams win also! Hopefully we'll see you and your friends on another hunt...More

Yesterday was my 5th scavenger hunt (Hamilton's NY) with Watson Adventures and it was one of my favorites. Anyone who is looking for an activity that marries history with clever puzzling-solving must jump into this hunt. Exploring the financial district and understanding a little bit...More

We did the "The Dancing Nudes Murder Mystery Scavenger Hunt" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and had lots of fun. The hunt took around 2 hours and took us throughout the museum. The clues were pretty challenging, well thought through, and some were quite...More

This was a team building exercise we brook up into two groups (3 and 4 people). At first I was skeptical about the experience, we ended up having a lot of fun. I would definitely do it again. Our instructor Ari was great.

I really wanted to like this, but basically its just hustling around the museum and looking at the art to find clues. Sounds fun enough, except that they structure it so that you are constantly walking back and forth, retracing your steps throughout the museum....More

We've done a few of their tours in New York City and Washington, D.C. They provide a fun and unique way to see museums and other points of interest (including ones you've visited before!). The scavenger hunts are well-organized and structured.
