The Murder at the Art Museum Virtual Scavenger Hunt


There’s a killer on the loose, and it’s up to your team to stop him! The madman—or madwoman—bumped off a famous art critic, then taunted the police to expose him/her by completing a virtual murder mystery scavenger hunt through America’s great museums. Your task: to play the game, follow the clues, find the art, answer amusing questions about what you find online, and suss out the name of the killer, the scene of the crime, and weapon used. Think you’re up to the challenge?

The trail of clues leads across the web

Using Zoom, you’ll join our Host in launching the game in our game in any browser. On teams, you’ll follow links to art on museum websites, tackle tricky questions for points, and consult photo clues to narrow the list of possible suspects, weapons and crime scenes. No previous knowledge of art is required. But you’ll be amazed at the art you discover—and with any luck, you’ll catch the culprit.

Games for private groups are available anytime, including an International Edition, for people whose first language is not English, as well as a Kids Edition for kids and adults to play together, ages 10 and up.

A 5-star review on Google: “My team was a little skeptical when we told them this would be our holiday event. Once the timer started, everyone was in. The game was fun and the team appreciated the challenge. We ended up having a wonderful time and I will be booking again.”

Another 5-star review on Google:  “Our group of 25 had a great team building virtual event with Watson. Our host, Michael, was excellent: funny, available, clear and had a pretty good playlist going in our virtual waiting room. There were many team laughs and lots of cross functional communication happening. Definitely going to do another adventure with them soon!

Yes, yet another 5-star review on Google: “Wow, amazing experience! I HIGHLY recommend for a business team bonding event, remote. It allowed for ample/natural time to have fun with your colleagues but see how people work in a different setting. They make it easy on you for planning purposes, just schedule, send invites, pay and show up!”
