We went to the one at The Field Museum. The alloted time and difficulty level to solve the "mystery" were very good. Ticket included museum admission. The group cap is 6 people, so if you have more than that you will need to split up. Don't expect any theatrics from the host, it's not that kind of murder mystery. It... More

Great idea, disappointing implementation. You are really not getting much for your money. They basically give you a list of simple questions and an answer sheet. The tour has nothing to do with the description on the website and you are not learning much in the process. The answers are scored against a list of words so even if your... More

so much fun! 2 hour scavenger hunt around the art institute. saw so much cool stuff and then stayed afterwards to do more exploring. Our guides were really friendly. We were on our own- very low pressure. What a great way to spend an afternoon! Fun had by all! would recommend to anyone. will do more hunts in the future.... More

We used the Watson Adventures Art Institute scavenger hunt as part of a work retreat. Everyone thought it was terrific. You get to see the museum through different eyes while you get to know colleagues better and have a lot of fun. It offers an interactive opportunity to learn about your work group outside of the work setting, and to... More

It was very interesting. We had a great time. We rushed all around the museum and didn't quite enjoy the art because we were told the time mattered. It actually didn't. Wish there were different adventures we can enjoy in the future. We asked if there was a different scenario for the Art Museum and we were told no, but... More

I highly recommend this. I took my 10 year old son on the Harry Potter hunt and we had so much fun. It was a great way to see the Art Institute. We were able to see great artwork without getting overloaded on too much of one type of artist.

We did the Lincoln Park scavenger hunt and went to places we would have never gone on our own. The food part was tough to keep up with since we had limited time to answer the questions. Highly recommend the scavenger hunts, the murder mysteries are always fun!

I get together with a group of college friends in Chicago every year. This year, we were looking for something fun and different to do on a Saturday afternoon and , while looking for ideas online, came across Watson Adventures' murder mystery scavenger hunt in the Field Museum. In our eight years of getting together, this is one of the... More

My aunt and I did the Loop movie tour. It was a lot of fun, but I have to admit that we were so focused on answering the questions that we didn't always pay attention to the movie details. I understand why they need to collect their materials at the end, but it would have been nice to be able... More

I went on the Watson adventures for my bachelorette party and it was a blast. Everyone loved it. We had tons of fun running around the field museum looking for clues. It was a great time and I highly recommend it.
