See the new museum in a new way!
You’ll have the time of your life as you try to save your life on this team game that’s part scavenger hunt, part escape-room game, inside the reincarnated Tennessee State Museum on the Bicentennial Mall.
Here’s the plot: you’ve been poisoned! An evil genius hides in your midst and has secretly dosed you with a toxin that will finish you off in one hour—unless you can solve his or her crafty puzzles involving objects in the museum. Crack the code, open a cryptex, get the antidote, and save your life…or, um, not. Think your team has what it takes to survive and expose the villain?
To succeed, you’ll need to seek out the most amazing and amusing objects in the museum’s wide-ranging collection. You’ll romp through state history in the Tennessee Time Tunnel, marvel at rooms that re-create life in the 19th century, experience the woes of the common soldier in the Civil War, mingle with remarkable people in the Interactive Theater, and much more. It’s as if the coolest stuff in the state’s attic has been unpacked and put on colorful display—waiting for you to uncover the secrets and, if you’re clever, stop that evil villain.
The museum is open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays, which makes it a perfect venue for some after-work, team-building fun with your colleagues.
