I did the adult only murder mystery scavenger hunt at the Museum of Fine Arts, and it was a great way to spend my first time there. I can't wait to go back and explore the museum some more! The scavenger hunt took about 2 hours and was not too easy but also not so hard that we were stumped... More

We did the public Revolutionary Boston Scavenger hunt, which included the points on the Freedom Trail from Faneuil Hall, the Old State House, through the North End and back. The clues were clever and required teamwork to solve. The timeline of 2 1/2 hours made it challenging to get to all the points and answer 30+ questions. Wear comfy shoes;... More

This hunt was billed as literary and pun-ny, but it was disappointingly straightforward. The organizer was friendly and it was somewhat interesting to walk around Old Boston and learn some historical facts. But we were expecting something a little more puzzle-like and intellectually challenging and that this was not. We'd recommend The Accomplice in NYC as a much better alternative.... More
