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

 

ONE SPECIAL NOTE: this Museum will be going through Renovations with the Dinosaur and Ancient life exhibit this coming Spring 2014…which will all be closed until 2019

    A lot of fun and good organizing. Format for the team wasn't clear though. Being added to a set number of teams is different than setting up your own team.

      You were welcome to do that if that was your intention…as the organizer I have to make sure all teams are an even number…..I probably should have had 4 instead of 3

    The most points any team could have scored is 1440…which no team has ever done…

    GREEN TEAM (the winner) 1412 points…98%
    YELLOW TEAM…..1409 points……98%
    RED TEAM…..1249 points…..86%

    Congradulations all for another great hunt. This may be my last hunt due to renovations at the Museum but is is my goal to host a bigger Scavenger hunt at the American Natural History Museum in NYC which is literally 3 times bigger then our museum in DC. This would an all day trip and bus ride

    The best Scavenger Hunt event I've ever been to! So well organized, and so much fun! The questions were a great mix of satisfyingly easy and brain-sweatingly challenging... with a few "no you didn't" trick questions thrown in for laughs! The people were great and I feel like I can't wait for the next hunt. The competition was fierce but fun. The 1st and 2nd teams scored within 5 points of each other... a very tight race! And the dinner and drinks had together afterwards was a BLAST! Good times all around. Can't wait for the next great Scavenger Hunt Adventure! :-D ***Thumbs up from me - thanks so much for all your hard work Mitchell Jones!***
