The Murder at the Baltimore Museum of Art Scavenger Hunt

Can your team unmask the killer?

If you like your art with a little mystery and murder, this is the hunt for you. The challenge: find out who killed a Watson Adventures staffer at the Baltimore Museum of Art. He left behind some cryptic clues, including a star that he drew on the ground in his own blood. You and your team of amateur detectives will have to figure out what that means and uncover the secrets of his double life. Solve the puzzle, uncovering related secrets in works of art along the way, and you won’t only bring a murderer to justice—you also might save the world.

No knowledge of the museum is necessary to play or to win. You just need to work well with your team, keep your eyes open, and wear a pair of comfy shoes.
