The Murder at the Denver Science Museum Scavenger Hunt

Does a killer stalk the halls of the Denver science museum?

We need your help! The Watson Adventures staffer who was supposed to lead your group in a scavenger hunt today at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science is not going to make it—because he’s dead. We think that the game he prepared for your group might contain clues that reveal who bumped him off and why. Are you up for a challenge that will call on the various skills of everyone on your team?

On teams, your group will need to follow clues that you lead throughout the science museum. You must find amazing and amusing objects on display, then answer tricky questions about them. Be on the lookout for secret codes and mysterious messages that our staffer might have planted in the game. It’s possible that the staffer led a double life—and you’re about to stumble into a tale of international intrigue.

Highlights of the museum scavenger hunt include…

  • An intoxicating whiff of what outer space smells like
  • An explorer who mistook manatees for mermaids
  • Sultry scenes carved from jewels
  • A baby bear spared by a president

To solve this murder mystery, you don’t need any special knowledge of the museum or its contents: you just need good teamwork, sharp eyes, and comfy shoes.
