The Murder Mystery Mayhem at the History Museum Scavenger Hunt

Uh-oh! A killer lurks among you…

…and they’re about to interrupt an otherwise normal team-building outing to your favorite history museum. Someone in your group—possibly on your own team—is a bit of a Jekyll and Hyde, and they’re plotting to make you history.

Fortunately, this game gives you a fighting a chance to prevent your own murder. Everyone in your group has been secretly poisoned, and the clock is ticking down on your time left to live. To save yourselves and get the antidote, all you have to do is complete various fun challenges and reveal the killer’s identity.

The killer has hidden their identity in a scavenger hunt at the history museum. Your team will solve a series of interlocking puzzles, decipher coded messages, and meet the conditions of creative, collaborative photo prompts.

Along the way, your team might…

  • Act your age with age-old artifacts.
  • Put your patriotism on display for all to see.
  • Interrogate sculptures and statues for clues.
  • Gape in wonderment at outdated technology.
  • Tackle a trivia quiz about famous murder mysteries.
  • Identify murderous movies and snippets of killer songs.

If your group loves escape-room games, they’ll love this history museum scavenger hunt. The game will also help you entertain a diverse group of people while boosting morale and teamwork. It’s perfect for a private party or a corporate team-building outing of any size.

A Kids Edition is also available, in which kids age 7 and up work with adults. It’s a great activity for a school field trip, birthday party, and more.

The Tampa Bay History Mysteries Scavenger Hunt

From pioneers to pirates to ballplayers and beyond

Go on a whirlwind tour across the centuries on a scavenger hunt at the surprising Tampa Bay History Center. On teams, you’ll follow clues and wend your way through re-creations of various periods of Florida’s past to answer tricky, humorous questions about what you discover.

The museum’s displays are packed with interesting information presented in innovative, multimedia displays. You’ll witness hair-raising battles, visit a cigar-making factory and an old-time cigar store, ride through a steer roundup and avoid a stampede, ponder a local celebrity mermaid, marvel at sports memorabilia, read stirring stories of Tampa’s men and women at war overseas, and join a crew of cut-throat pirates on an overseas quest.

No knowledge of Tampa’s history is required: you just need good teamwork, sharp eyes, and comfy shoes. Come see for yourself why we think this new location on the Riverwalk is one of America’s best history museums. And after the hunt, you could relax at the new outpost of the legendary Columbia restaurant of Ybor City.
