The Secrets of the DIA: A Scavenger Hunt at the Detroit Institute of Arts

Find the humor hidden in great art

See the best of the amazing Detroit Institute of Arts museum on a whirlwind scavenger hunt. Your adventure will span time and continents as your team follows a trail of clues through the museum to explore ancient Roman stones, dazzling Impressionist scenes of Paris, biblical disasters by Old Masters, upstart American moguls and muggles, contemporary art so new you’ll swear the paint isn’t dry, and much more. But that’s not all: to win, you’ll have to answer tricky, humorous questions about what you find.

Along the way, you might discover…

  • The saint who might have contributed a little too much to a kegger
  • A naughty cupid
  • The worst nudist camp ever
  • A woman who’d better watch her step
  • A guy who looks like he should sue his acupuncturist

Plus, paintings that survived Pompeii, mini mummies, an unfortunate skinny-dipper, and the dish that’s served steamed and stuffed in red-pepper sauce at 4 o’clock. But no knowledge of art or the museum is necessary to earn a first-place finish: you just need sharp eyes, comfy shoes, and good teamwork.

The hunt is a fantastic way to entertain a diverse group of people, whether it’s an outing with colleagues, a birthday party, an alumni gathering—you name it!
