HAMILTON: The Scavenger Hunt for Kids

We dare you not to start humming Hamilton tunes…

…as you answer funny and tricky questions about the intriguing statesman and wind your way through the streets of Lower Manhattan, from Bowling Green to Federal Hall on Wall Street, from Hamilton’s grave near Broadway to Fraunces Tavern (where Hamilton dined with Washington).  

On this history-filled activity that’s perfect for school field trips and birthday parties, kids and adults collaborate on teams to discover the places where the feisty Founding Father worked, played, debated, fought, and planned his fatal duel. This hunt is sure to be a hit with fans of the insanely popular Broadway musical, as well as with those who don’t know much (yet) about Hamilton and early New York City.

And don’t worry—no knowledge of Alexander Hamilton or the Wall Street area is necessary! You just need sharp eyes and good teamwork.

Recommended for ages 10 and up. 

What happy hunters are saying about the Hamilton scavenger hunt

A 5-star review on Yelp: “The scavenger hunts are very well organized, creative, fun and active! Our family of 18 (ages 7-60) just did the Hamilton Hunt and had a blast. Questions are sophisticated enough to engage entire family, and the hunt had all our teams racing around lower Manhattan learning about our founding fathers and having lots of laughs. I would highly recommend.”

“Watson Adventures helped my school plan an extremely adventurous day from start to finish. We had a unique experience around New York City, and everyone had a blast! Thank you so, so much!!! Can’t wait to do it again!” –A high school teacher
