Pop goes the team-building game!
If a scavenger hunt steeped in pop culture sounds irresistible, then this is the hunt for you. The Museum of Pop Culture is a feast for the eyes and ears. Recent exhibits have featured cutting-edge art, props, and memorabilia from fantastical TV shows like Star Trek and Game of Thrones, revolutionary video games, guitars from legendary rockers, a tribute to Jimi Hendrix, and interactive exhibits on classic horror movies sure to tingle your spine.
Your team’s mission: follow clues, explore the galleries, and answer tricky, humorous questions about what you find.
You might tackle such questions as…
- What’s red and yellow and probably makes Who happy? Answer: The Fun Gun, from ‘Doctor Who.’
- Find the group that you might think was called in when Dumpty took a fall. According to the FBI, what did teenagers do to their single to hear obscenities? Answer: Play it at 33 rpm, according to an FBI report on the Kingsmen’s hit song “Louie, Louie.”
- At the end of the “Day,” what did the Fab Four call the crescendo? (But don’t let it disturb you.) Answer: The Beatles called the crescendo at the end of “A Day in the Life” a “freak out.”
Don’t worry if these seem mystifying: we’ve left out the clues that guide you to the right spot to find the answers. (No cheating!) No previous knowledge is necessary to play the game or even win. All the clues will be right before your eyes.
Younger audiences, ages 7 and up, can also get in the game on a special edition that provides an entertaining adventure for school field trips and birthday parties.
