The Museum of Natural Hysteria Scavenger Hunt

From whales to insects, from mummies to diamonds…

The wonders never cease on this whirlwind tour of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. You’ll follow a trail of clues and answer tricky, humorous questions about what you find as you travel to China, Africa, South America, the Ice Age, ancient oceans, and beyond. Plus you’ll get a great heaping helping of the new eye-popping jaw-dropping dinosaurs exhibit, aka the Hall of Fossils! 

A museum scavenger hunt full of surprises

On this slightly surreal adventure, you might discover…

  • A bird’s favorite booze
  • The least secure hiding place for the famous Hope Diamond
  • What town you should probably avoid during a meteor shower
  • A neanderthal’s distinctive “humidifier”
  • A tell-tale bone that links a T. rex with your chicken dinner

And those are just a few of the secrets on this eclectic hunt. You don’t need any previous knowledge to triumph—you just need good teamwork and comfortable shoes!

We also offer a Kids Edition of this hunt, which has been recommended by Budget Travel and Suitable for ages 7 and up. Contact us to find out what we can do for your group—and find more fun in Washington, D.C.!
