The Detroit Institute Of Art Scavenger Hunt says
Are you a super sleuth? Can you put together clues and track stories back through history? Join The Detroit History Club for an evening you’ll never forget. When you arrive at the closed museum, built in 1927 to house the world-renowned art collection of one of the finest cities on earth, you’ll be greeted with a glass of craft beer or wine before you take your seat. After a brief lecture on the fascinating history of the Detroit Institute of Arts which, after being founded by prominent Detroit citizens in 1885, opened on September 1, 1888, in a building on Jefferson Avenue. You’ll learn about the oldest piece in the collections, the gallery staff says is haunted, and the donations of the city's elite. Then our team will split you into groups, arm you with your equipment, and set you free in the museum. For two hours the museum is yours to explore without crowds, but with a mission. It will be up to your team to solve the riddles to locate the correct piece of art or artifact; once there, your team will take a photo using the provided camera. As the time ticks down, your team will make their way back to our starting location where you’ll turn in your photos, grab a drink, and enjoy seasonal Michigan hors d'oeuvres as we tally scores. The team with the most correctly solved riddles is the winner. First, second, and third place winning teams will leave with great Detroit-themed prizes, Detroit Institute of Arts swag, and of course bragging rights.
