This public scavenger hunt/murder mystery game hosted by Watson Adventures takes you to the National Museum of American History, immersing you in a whodunit involving a long-lost invention from Benjamin Franklin. Those involved in the discovery of the “infernal machine” have been disappearing, and it’s your job to discover why. This for-adults-only excursion asks that you gather a team of two to six to crack a secret code to solve the mystery and halt the murders. You’ll have a chance to fully explore the museum while also putting your detective skills to the test.
