Description: Join Watson Adventures on a unique scavenger hunt for kids aged 7 and up!
Sniff out the winner: cats or dogs? Kids and adults work together to chase down cats and dogs hidden in works of art throughout the Metropolitan Museum of Art. You'll search for ancient Egyptian felines, howling hair-raising hounds, naughty children teasing a tabby, and a wrapped up Egyptian Rover that just wants to find his mummy. Along the way you'll be answering humorous questions and at the end of the hunt you?ll have to determine which group came out on top: cats or dogs?
This hunt is for ages seven and up. Kids must be accompanied by adults. Price includes museum admission. Advance purchase is required via http://www.watsonadventures.com. Questions? Call 877-9GO-HUNT.
