Outdoor Scavenger Hunts & Museum Games

Enjoy scavenger hunts of all kinds, including murder mysteries, at such places as the National Gallery of Art and various Smithsonian museums, including the National Museum of Natural History. Hunt locations in nearby Virginia include Mount Vernon. Currently the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum is mostly closed for renovations, but we recommend hunts at the museum’s spinoff, the Udvar-Hazy Center, near Dulles Airport.

“Anywhere you want” options that foster team building include the Grab ’n’ Go Scavenger Hunt, the Trivia Slam, and the Murder by Team Building Game. Also available: Escape the Museum games and International Editions.

Kids Editions, in which children and adults play together, make for great school field trips and birthday-party celebrations. Particularly popular is the Wizard School Scavenger Hunt, for Harry Potter fans, at the National Gallery of Art.

Virtual Team-Building Games

Just because you can't meet in-person doesn't mean that you have to miss out on team-building fun. Whether you’re part of a corporate group or a bunch of friends looking for fun, you can book a private D.C. virtual tour for any occasion, from corporate team building to birthday parties to field trips. On our Virtual Team-Building Games you’ll meet with our Host on Zoom or your favorite conferencing platform. Then, on teams, you'll go into breakout rooms and use our browser-based app to follow a trail of clues across amazing websites, in search of answers to humorous questions.

What game is best for your team? Depending on the game you choose, you could explore museums and famous places across America or even across the globe; or you might crack puzzles to solve a murder mystery; or you might tackle tricky trivia in a virtual "pub quiz" with surprising challenges.
