The Twisted Science Scavenger Hunt at the Franklin Institute

Like a lightning rod for fun

You don’t need to be Ben Franklin to discover that the best way to explore the Franklin Institute is on this team-building scavenger hunt. You’ll follow a trail of tricky clues and answer humorous questions about the museum’s oddest and most fascinating exhibits.

Along the way, you might…

  • Walk through a giant heart
  • Decipher optical illusions
  • Uncover how the Wright brothers thwarted spies
  • Penetrate the mystery of Foucault’s pendulum
  • Discover the literally shocking reason Ben Franklin’s son lost his fingers

Those are just some of the highlights you can expect on a hunt at this massive museum known for its exciting, inventive, and interactive ways of getting people to explore all things scientific.

And don’t worry: no previous knowledge of the Founding Father or his scientific discoveries is necessary to play—or to be crowned the winner. You just need sharp eyes, comfy shoes, and excellent teamwork.

Team-building fun on a scavenger hunt in Philadelphia

On hunts for private groups, if you’re looking for an activity that makes many teams pull together, try the special Mixed Alliances Edition. Teams of three players will take turns collaborating with two or three other teams. They are competing against each other—but they must cooperate to win. Each player will interact with up to 11 other players during the hunt. It’s a great way to increase the interaction among players.

What happy hunters are saying

“Thank you for pulling the hunt together in 1.5 weeks for our group. We had SO much fun and thought it was a great team-building experience. The Hunt Hosts were very friendly, helpful, and accommodating to our needs. We arrived 15 minutes earlier than expected, and they were still able to form teams as we left the bus. I will be sure to recommend Watson Adventures in the future! Thanks again for such a memorable experience.” –An engineer in the pharmaceutical industry
