The Revolutionary Philadelphia Scavenger Hunt

America’s battle scars and secrets—revealed

The British are coming! And so are the patriots! Actually, they’re all already here, on display at the new Museum of the American Revolution in the heart of Philadelphia, a few blocks from Independence Hall. This group game gives you an unusual and hilarious whirlwind tour of its highlights, astonishing and odd artifacts, and hidden surprises.

You’ll follow a trail of clues that weaves through the war’s timeline, from the “Road to Independence,” through “The Darkest Hour,” and on to “A New Nation.” But this isn’t your ordinary scavenger hunt, so you won’t be collecting objects (put back that musket!). Instead, you’ll be collecting answers to tricky, funny questions.

No knowledge of the Revolution is required. The hunt is a test of teamwork, not trivia, and all you need to win is a pair of sharp eyes—and comfy shoes.

We also offer an easier version of this hunt for kids and adults to play together, which makes for the perfect school field trip. It’s guaranteed to spark any kid’s interest in the Revolutionary War, the Founding Fathers—and Mothers—and history in general. Recommended for ages 7 and up.
