Time-travel to Long Island’s past…
…on a scavenger hunt at one of New York’s most underappreciated museums, the Long Island Museum in Stony Brook. It’s several delightful museums in one: an art museum boasting remarkable 19th-century paintings, a carriage museum with some 100 carriages of all kinds, plus a formal garden and a collection of historic buildings in a nine-acre setting. There’s an 1877 schoolhouse! An 1875 blacksmith shop! A 1794 barn! We could go on.
But this isn’t any old tour. To explore the museum’s diverse treasures—and to triumph—you’ll be challenged to answer tricky, entertaining questions with your team. No knowledge of art or Long Island history is necessary: you just need to keep your eyes open and work together.
The museum commissioned us to create this hunt, which is ideal for corporate or social-club outings, student and alumni reunions, family get-togethers—you name it. We also offer a version for kids and adults to do together, which is a big hit for school field trips and birthday parties; it’s recommended for ages 7 and up.
You owe it to yourself to check it out.
