The Escape the Fernbank Museum Scavenger Hunt

Millions of years of history—but only 90 minutes to save yourself!

The bad news at the start of this game: you’ve been poisoned! The good news: your teammates can help you find the cure by playing this scavenger hunt. An evil genius is using you as a guinea pig for one of his “unnatural history” experiments, and if you can solve a series of puzzles, you will learn the combination to a box that contains the antidote. Sure, you can escape a room, but can you unlock the box and escape the museum—with your life?

The puzzles involve the most unusual items on display in the Fernbank Museum. You’ll uncover eons’ worth of oddities in the Walk Through Time in Georgia exhibit, search for secrets in other parts of the world in Reflections on Culture, doubt the evidence you’ll see with your own eyes in the Sensing Nature galleries, and find out what seashells from the seashore have in store for you. Along the way, you’ll interact with the Hunt Host for a surprise challenge.

This is a great game for all kinds of groups—especially ones too large for conventional escape-room games. If your group has people who don’t particularly care for puzzles, they’ll still find themselves fascinated by the museum highlights revealed on this unusual tour.

Special editions for kids (ages 7 and up) are also available.
