The Mad Science Scavenger Hunt

See the surreal side of science…

…on a whirlwind tour of the Museum of Science that reveals eye-popping interactive exhibits, ingenious beasts, delightful dioramas, eccentric inventors, and marvelous machines. On this team-building adventure, you’ll follow clues and answer slightly crazy questions about what you discover. Highlights include a life-size T. rex, a pharaoh with a fan club, a clanging kinetic tower, optical illusions, a mad scientist’s lab, a fascinating/horrifying trophy room, a nightmare chair, and hot chicks (in an incubator, of course).

No MIT degree is required—in fact, it could be a hindrance. You just need inquiring minds, good teamwork, and a sense of humor.

The Murder at the Science Museum Scavenger Hunt

A serial killer—or a Freemason curse?

Museum of Science staffers are turning up dead—and they were all involved in the recent discovery of a long-lost invention by Benjamin Franklin. This “infernal machine” has a murky past: Freemasons supposedly used it as part of a secret ritual. Were the deaths caused by the invention, or are they part of the fabled curse of the Freemasons? Or is a serial killer on the loose? Your team of sleuths will work together to uncover the museum’s secrets and crack a code to solve the mystery and stop the killings.
