The Secrets of the Philadelphia Museum Scavenger Hunt

Discover the weird and wacky side of art…

…on a whirlwind tour of the best—and strangest—art in this amazing museum. Decipher clues and answer tricky, humorous questions as you travel across time and continents. You’ll explore such destinations as a French monastery, a Chinese palace, an Indian Temple, a Pennsylvania Dutch kitchen, a Japanese village, a medieval knight’s tomb, and the palatial rooms of European nobles, to name a few of the highlights.

Along the way, you might search for…

  • A Dutch master doing something fishy in one of his own scenes
  • A mule that might cry, “Hey, no smoking back there!”
  • A sweet drink with a rotten ingredient
  • A colonial version of a dribble glass
  • A dragon with horrendous halitosis

But no knowledge of art or the museum is required to enjoy the hijinks and perhaps even win: you just need sharp eyes and comfy shoes.

Countless corporate groups have enjoyed this hunt as a team-building activity since we first offered it in 2004. A version for kids and adults to enjoy together has been recommended by GoCityKids.com. Suitable for ages 7 and up, it has proven popular with all kinds of groups, from teachers leading school field trips to parents looking for an unusual birthday-party activity.
