The Murder at the National Gallery Scavenger Hunt

Saturday, June 11, 2016 at 2:00PM

The National Gallery of Art

Enter at 6th and Constitution Avenue NW

Washington, DC 20565

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 multimillion-dollar purchase of a Da Vinci. The murder victim knew too much—and now it’s up to you 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. Can you figure out who dunnit?

Be prepared for a challenging hunt, lasting about 2.5 hours. Scavenger hunt is coordinated by Watson Adventures.

Dine-around to follow at Austin Grill, 750 E Street, NW.
