Watson Adventures’ The Museum Strikes Back Scavenger Hunt for Star Wars Fans - American Museum of Natural History
March 16, 2019 - New York

Join Watson Adventures on a unique scavenger hunt for adults and kids ages 10 & up! Explore the galaxy of the Museum of Natural History in search of artifacts that echo the characters, creatures and planets of Star Wars. Track down Bantha-sized beasts, giant bugs as gross as Geonosians, hunters as fearsome as Boba Fett and samurai who helped inspire the Jedi. You’ll discover an underwater world any Gungan could call home, a real-life tree that puts Endors’ to shame and the science behind the Clone Wars. The hunt is not an addition to or variation on the Star Wars adventures, but instead references to the movies will provide a surprising bridge to many strange and wonderful pieces of history. Kids must be accompanied by an adult, but all-adult teams can compete separately. Price includes museum admission. Advance purchase is required. Questions? Call 877-9GO-HUNT.
