Scavenger Hunt at the Museum of Natural History!

We'll meet up at the Museum of Natural History at 11:30 am. Please be ON TIME!

From 11:30 am - 12:00 pm, we will check in, get the teams together, distribute hunt materials, and review rules and guidelines.

At 12:00 pm the teams disburse and begin the 3 hour hunt! Teams will have until 4:00 pm to decipher the clues and solve the riddles. The hunt will take you through numerous exhibits, collections, and artifacts.

At 4:30 pm we will collect the results, score each team, and announce the winner. Fandango gift certificates will be awarded to each member of the winning team!

Following the hunt, we will adjourn to a nearby spot for food, drinks, and a recap of the afternoon!

Please be aware your RSVP is not guaranteed without payment.

Hope to see you there!

Mitch

    We had such a great time at the scavenger hunt. A little difficult at first, but once we figured out how to solve the clues, it got really fun. It is a LONG day, but I would definitely do it again!

    Mitchell did an amazing job of organizing the event. I had hoped that more participants would have joined the gathering afterwards...

    Congradulations to al you attendee my scavenger hunt. The highest score you could have gotten is 1440 points...and that is if all answers were perfect. Nobody has done that to this day

    You all did an amazing jobs. These are probably the highest (and closest) scores I have ever gotten from each team

    YELLOW TEAM.........1295.....89% (the winners)
    BLUE TEAM................1291.....89% Second Place (close)
    BLACK TEAM.............1275.....88% third
    RED TEAM..................1145.....79%
    WHITE TEAM.............1120....77%

    I really want to appreciate you all for coming and patronizing my event. I created this game from scratch and it took me months any many trips to the museums with photographs.

    I do aim to do the same hunt at the American Natural History Museum in NYC ....plus more of these hunts at the rest of the smithsonian museums.

    Again thank you all

    GETTING THERE
    The closest metro are FEDERAL TRIANGLE and SMITHSONIAN (orange and Blue Line) Allow yourslef about an hour to get there. DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT drive. Finding a parking spot down by the mall will be next to impossible and take you hours

    11:00 pm REGISTRATION
    Registration will start around 11:00 (officially 11:30) at the ATRIUM CAFE (bottom floor right across form the gift shop...NOT to be confuse with the ice cream stand at the entrance)

    This will give people time to register and hand out tags and make teams and go over rules

    12 PM
    All teams will follow me to the Elephant and I will hand out question sheets and the game will start

    4:30 PM
    teams will meet back at the ATRIUM CAFE we gathering sheets from each team. Give people a chance to use restrooms, get a soda etc.

    5:00 PM
    We will all go to to have dinner and probably finish grading each teams sheets
