We went to The Murder at the Met Scavenger Hunt with our two kids. The only disappointment was the incompetent staff at the Met's coat check. Otherwise the actual scavenger hunt was really well put together and very clever. Even though we didn't win, we...More

My family and I (adults) did a Watson Adventures Scavenger Hunt at the Cloisters Museum in the Bronx this past weekend for my 61 year old mother's birthday. We all had an amazing time! We were a group of 6 (the maximum) which was fine,...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.

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...More

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....More

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...More

Hi there, I'm sorry for our delayed response. The scavenger hunts in museums are all handicap accessible. If you're looking for an outdoor hunt, we can recommend neighborhoods that might be better than others. Feel free to... More
