A murder mystery scavenger hunt for adults at the Met Museum! Fans of murder mysteries and "The Da Vinci Code" will enjoy this scavenger hunt throughout the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A murdered curator has left behind a cryptic trail of clues connected with secrets in works of art. As your team gathers answers about the art, you begin to piece together a sordid tale about greed, lust, revenge and treachery, all revolving around the museum's planned multi-million dollar purchase of a rare painting by Leonardo Da Vinci. The murder victim knew too much - and now it's your turn to discover what drove someone to commit murder. To find out, you'll have to crack a secret code to figure out who dunnit. Advance purchase is required.
Join Watson Adventures on a unique dragon-hunting scavenger hunt!
The Met Museum is filled with dragons that need to be tracked down and rounded up. Kids and adults will go dragon hunting together in search of Speckled Forktails, Black Grangles, Large-mouthed Undertoads, Sinuous Silvery Snarches, and dreaded Hissing Halitosins. They are hiding in paintings, statues, armor, and even musical instruments - everywhere you look! Fans of the "How To Train Your Dragon" movies will be surprised at the variety of winged wonders found at this museum.
This hunt is for ages 10 and up. Kids must be accompanied by adults. Price includes museum admission. Advance purchase is required via website.
Venue Description: Sun.-Thurs., 10am-5:30pm; Fri.-Sat., 10am-9pm. Recommended admission: $25.
