Well organized and great hosts Corey and Michael. You get to see lots of the museum and planetarium that you might not ordinarily get to and learn lots of factoids about history along the way. We went as a work team building event and it was fun, challenging and a great 90 mins!

We loved our Murder at the Met Scavenger Hunt. What a great way to see a Museum. The questions were tough and we loved the challenge. Our family loved it-millennials and baby boomers. Kim was a great tour leader. We will definitely do another/different Hunt. Highly recommended!

We had a blast. We've been to the Met before but got to see it from a totally different vantage point while searching the exhibits. We're now looking to go on more of the adventures they offer.

We did the Grand Central photo hunt this past weekend for a Bachelorette Party. From start to finish, the people I worked with were honest, helpful and accommodating. Our numbers kept changing, and they happily allowed me to "pay the balance" on the day of the hunt. On Saturday, we had people (including myself!) running late due to crowded subways.... More

Four people, my husband and me and our pastor and his wife, made up our team. It was so creative and a blast! The murder mystery was not offensive or disgusting. The questions, some more than others, were thought-provoking. I only wish there more questions for more time! We will definitely do these mysteries again! It was well worth the... More

We're so glad you enjoyed the hunt! If you're looking for another murder mystery you might enjoy the one we do at the natural history museum. We're also working on a new hunt called Unlock the Box. Definitely our hardest hunt to date, it is chock full of puzzles. If you have any questions or need suggestions about your next... More

I have done many different scavenger hunts with Watson Adventures and have always had a great time! The people who run it are so nice and helpful and the tours are always so fun. The hunts are definitely fast paced and challenging! The last hunt I did required the use of your phone instead of pen and paper, so make... More

This was SO MUCH FUN! Some of the questions were a little hard, but it really took you all over Grand Central and you can learn a lot of little factoids about the place. There are so many options for different "hunts" you can do. We will definitely be using Watson Adventures again!

This scavenger hunt via app was so clever and really required all team members to contribute. They were challenging enough that it required quite a bit of cooperation among team members to really finish in time. We did it for a work team building type of event, but I would totally do it again with my friends and family. I... More

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 at other art work. We had an 11 and 10 year old with us and... More

I took my 3 kids to the Grand Central Terminal Family Hunt and we had a great time. My kids were 16, 14, and 12 and I have to say they found most of the clues (especially the 16 year old). It was a great way to see the sights without the kids getting bored. We did have a little... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
