Outdoor scavenger hunts and museum games
If you’re looking for a fun group activity in Albany, we have some simple advice for you: book our team-building scavenger hunt at the New York State Museum! First, it’s conveniently located, right on the south side of the Empire State Plaza, facing the New York State Capitol. Second, it boasts a delightful, wide-ranging collection of artifacts and re-creations of places from across the state and over the centuries. And third, and most important of all, our scavenger hunt provides a whirlwind tour of the best the museum has to offer, as your team explores the galleries in search of answers to tricky and entertaining questions.
You don’t need to know anything about New York State or its history to play or to win. You just need good teamwork and a sense of humor—and boundless curiosity could certainly help, too.
This museum is like New York’s own Smithsonian Institute. One minute, you’ll be onboard a vintage New York City subway.
The next, you’ll mingle with hopeful immigrants at Ellis Island. Around the corner, you’ll spot wildlife in the Adirondacks...steps away from Jumbo the elephant. On the top floor, you’ll take in a landmark carousel and sweeping views of downtown Albany.
But wait! Maybe you have your heart set on an outdoor activity. Our Grab ’n’ Go Scavenger Hunt can be played just about anywhere, and our Murder Mystery Mayhem Scavenger Hunt adds puzzles and intrigue to the mix.
Hold on! If you’re stuck in an office or a hotel or anywhere else indoors, we have fun team-building options for you: the Trivia Slam will be the wildest quiz you’ve ever experienced, and the Murder by Team Building Game is like an escape-room challenge...but in your own conference room.
Virtual games: connect with remote colleagues for fun
On teams, you'll enter virtual breakout rooms and follow clues that take you virtually to amazing museums and remarkable landmarks, in search of answers to tricky, humorous questions. You can also solve a murder mystery, or ponder a criminal mastermind's devious puzzles, or do a deep-dive on a great city such as Washington, D.C., or tackle tricky trivia and unusual challenges on a virtual pub quiz.
Tell us what your group enjoys, and leave the adventure to us! Check out all of our Virtual Team-Building Games.
