Treasure Hunt at the British Museum

Who doesn’t want to have some maverick museum fun? Bonus points in our treasure hunts range from scrutiny to silliness: Will your team be willing to sell their pride to earn points by posing like a 5-legged Mesopotamian creature? Those Lamassus are at the Met (NY) & Louvre (Paris), too. Our goal? For you to start making connections on your own.

The collection of the British Museum includes over 8 million objects and covers 75,000 m²... where does one start? Leave it with us and you’ll have a fun, fresh and focused look at the collection. Our hunters (even those with little legs) have repeatedly continued their museum visit well after the hunt. Nothing makes us happier!

Teams photo themselves in front of as many pieces of treasure as possible within the given amount of time, picking up bonus questions embedded in the text, so bring freshly charged batteries in your phones or cameras for great photos to send Granny!

  • Are you a travelling family (kids, teens, any age), a solo traveler or do you just want to give a fantastic experience to a loved one’s trip to London?

    Let us transform you into detectives to discover both famous & hidden British Museum treasures. Teams (of 2 people or more) photo themselves in front of as many treasures as possible within the given amount of time. Poof! The very notion of “Museum Legs” disappears. Our goal? To dust off London’s museums, focusing visitors by injecting adrenalin.

    Fun & Games is our most popular theme for first time visitors (adults and kids, alike), as it unifies the collection from all corners & quarters. The BM’s treasured Lewis Chessmen are of course prize pieces of treasure, but you’ll also trot like a Tang Horse, find Mesopotamian graffiti of a board game & impersonate Greek Olympians… In other words, this theme gets you up, down & around!

    As you’re vying for museum glory against other teams, please note we’ll start PROMPTLY at the meeting time. Our rep will be at the Roman Equestrian prince (within the British Museum lobby, near the circular Info Desk), with a THATMuse bag, to explain the rules before letting you & your team play!
