Can you deduce whodunnit?
Fans of murder mysteries and The Da Vinci Code will enjoy this scavenger hunt throughout the Metropolitan Museum of Art. A murdered curator has left behind a cryptic trail of clues connected with secrets in works of art. As your team gathers answers about the art, you begin to piece together a sordid tale about greed, lust, pride, revenge, and treachery, all revolving around the museum’s planned multi-million-dollar purchase of a rare painting by Leonardo da Vinci.
The murder victim knew too much—and now it’s your turn to learn what he knew and discover what drove one of four suspects to commit murder. To find out, you’ll have to crack a secret code left in the victim’s appointment calendar. The darkened and less crowded galleries in the evening make a setting perfect for…murder. (Cue sinister laugh.)
Length: The entire event, from sign-in to the announcement of the winners, takes about two and a half hours.
Warning: This is our most challenging hunt. We strongly recommend hunting with a team of three or more. If you sign up with fewer than three people, we suggest pairing up with others at the start of the hunt to form a larger team.

All tickets include admission to the museum. Unfortunately, we cannot offer a discount to Met members because the museum explicitly tells us that participation in group events not sponsored by the museum, such as our hunts, are not a benefit of membership. The Met charges us for your participation, so museum admission must be included in every ticket we sell. Just think of it as a donation to a cause you like to support!
