Description: Join Watson Adventures on a unique trivia scavenger hunt for adults at the Metropolitan Museum of Art!
It's a trivia quiz! It's a scavenger hunt! Wait, it's both! Here's a chance to show off your knowledge of unusual facts on this adventure at the Met. On this hunt, each question challenges your team to come up with an answer to a trivia question. That answer then becomes a crucial clue to answering a second question about an object on display.
Experience in art is not required! The trivia comes from movies, pop music, history, sports, science, books - you name it. Knowing one of Lady Gaga's hit songs could help you find out what's going on in a sneaky card game. Remembering how many stars make up a famous dipper can help you track down a goddess getting a constellation prize. You can consult your smartphone but sometimes teamwork and fast thinking will be faster - and more fun.
If you love pub quizzes, you'll enjoy this hunt. Price includes museum admission. Advance purchase is required via http://www.watsonadventures.com. Questions? Call 877-9GO-HUNT.
