Add to Calendar 03-05-2014 03-05-2014 15 Watson Adventures' Brain Squeeze Trivia Scavenger Hunt 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. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=153161 Metropolitan Museum of Art true DD/MM/YYYY

Venue Description: The Metropolitan Museum of Art accommodates some of the greatest cultural treasures in the world, representing art from around the world and every time period from the Stone Age to the present. The museum houses the finest American art in the world, as well as an impressive collection of European, Greco-Roman, and Ancient Egyptian art. The Egyptian Art gallery includes a whole temple that was shipped to America as a gift.

The Cloisters A branch of the The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Cloisters are devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. The building itself is built with actual chapels, cloisters and other pieces of Gothic and Romanesque architecture. Inside, one can see sculpture, tapestries, magnificent stained-glass windows, and more. The most renowned treasures include the Book of Hours by Jeanne d'Evreux, the Bury St. Edmonds cross, the Chalice of Antioch, and the Unicorn Tapestries.
