Metropolitan Museum of Art Scavenger Hunt

The Met Scavenger Hunt

An exciting team-building adventure for your company or group in the world’s greatest art museum!

Our Metropolitan Museum of Art Scavenger Hunt is full of ancient and modern secrets! Roam the corridors of Egyptian artifacts. Explore the Temple of Dendur. Search for secret carvings in ancient Greek columns. Examine famous paintings for hidden details. Art, history and culture!

Find your way between ancient civilizations, Egyptian temples, mummies, medieval statues, famous painting after famous painting, Buddhas of every kind, Religious art works, Chinese legends, musical instruments you never knew existed and more! The Metropolitan Museum of Art is a maze that you could easily get lost in for an afternoon, if you didn’t have your trusty map.

In a race against time and the other teams, work together to:

  • Search for hidden carvings in the pillars of the Temple of Dendur
  • Decipher ancient Greek inscriptions that reveal the secret identity of a famous mummy
  • Figure out who was standing by as Socrates willingly drank his poison.
  • Find the identity of the Greek warrior who’s holding the head of a Gorgon.
  • What’s a Gorgon anyway?
  • Explore the secrets of DaVinci and Monet
  • So much more!

Each team gets one set of clues. Work together to plot your course, get the most answers and outsmart the other teams! Be sure to look up, down and all around for the answers – they could be anywhere!

It’s not a tour – it’s a game of strategy, collaboration and communication in which teams must search together for the answers to clues, solve the puzzle first and outsmart the other teams to win. Are you ready? Let’s go!

Important information about museum admission: The Met has very strict rules about group reservations. We are required to register all groups and the museum charges admission at the group rates specified here. Museum admission is in addition to our fee. Secret City is an independent company and not affiliated with The Met. The museum considers our scavenger hunt to be a third-party guided visit, operated at their discretion. You can avoid the expense of museum admission by selecting a different hunt.

Disclaimer: Of course, The Met is an awesome museum and an amazing destination – and for that reason, it is the location for all kinds of events and goings-on. Unfortunately, that can often result in certain areas of the museum being closed off for private events. We are not able to know in advance what will be closed, nor can we restructure the hunt to avoid closures (since we are not informed in advance). Additionally, there is a lot of construction taking place in the museum right now. For all of these reasons, it may be best to consider our other offerings.
