The MFAH Madness Scavenger Hunt

Discover the surprising side of great art…

…on a whirlwind tour that reveals the best of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Your adventure will take you from Africa to America, Italy to India, Tiffany to Toulouse-Lautrec, and beyond. On teams, you’ll follow a trail of clues in search of answers to tricky, entertaining questions about the unusual art and artifacts you find.

Your team-building quest might reveal…

  • The object you’ll find when a kid-sized “wrap star” opens up and says, “Ahhhh…”
  • The childish-sounding event that a pair of ceremonial cups helped ward off
  • Why the dish literally could have run away with the spoon

And those are just a few of the quirky highlights featured on this scavenger hunt. No previous knowledge of art or the museum is required: you just need good teamwork, sharp eyes, and comfy shoes.

For an extra challenge, try the Murder at the Museum of Fine Arts Scavenger Hunt, in which the works of art help you unravel a twisty tale of international intrigue.

A Kids Edition, in which youngsters and adults work together, is suitable for ages 7 and up—and perfect for school field trips and family celebrations.

What delighted clients are saying

“Everyone loved the hunt–even those we had to initially prod to join in, ended up having a great time. The clues were well done and the group certainly needed to put on their thinking caps! It was an awesome outing and really, really went a long way in breaking down the office walls and helping department members get to know each other better. I would award the entire adventure 5 stars out of 5! And, I must also add, that our department is the envy of the entire company for having gone on such a fun outing!” —an SVP of Human Resources

“Our group really enjoyed themselves and I want to commend Levon for being such a great facilitator. Lindsey was also super helpful. I enjoyed working with you all and look forward to the next opportunity!”  —a Team Lead of Corporate Meetings & Incentives
