The Murder at the Met Scavenger Hunt

Can your team solve this murder mystery scavenger hunt?

Fans of murder mysteries and The Da Vinci Code will enjoy this unusual adventure at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A murdered curator has left behind a cryptic trail of clues connected with secrets in works of art. As your team gathers answers about the art, you begin to piece together a sordid tale about greed, lust, pride, revenge, and treachery—all revolving around the museum’s planned multi-million-dollar purchase of a rare painting by Leonardo da Vinci.

Even if you’re not a murder mystery buff, you’ll have plenty of fun spotting unusual details in art, piecing together the story, and laughing at some of the surprising discoveries. No knowledge of the museum or its art is required—you just need sharp eyes, comfy shoes, and good teamwork.

“We had a fantastic time yesterday. Thank you for all your assistance! Our Hunt Host was a lot of fun and kept us interested in the story line—which is just juicy and scandalous enough to have kept everyone interested. We had a really great time as individual teams working together as well as competing against each other.” –Jessica Park, Office Manager, Black Mountain Systems

Thank you so much for making the process so easy and seamless. I was super impressed from start to finish. Thanks again!!!!” —an organizer from a pharmaceutical firm

A 5-star review on TripAdvisor: “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 [hunt host]. We will definitely do another/different Hunt. Highly recommended!”
