Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Get tickets!


Prowl around one of the largest museums in the United States, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and get into the spirit of Obscura Day by exploring eerie works of art. Artists definitely have a dark side, and you’ll discover it at your peril while searching for skulls and skeletons, hideous monsters, severed heads, horrifying devices, mortifying martyrs, cold-blooded killers, freaky beasts, and other assorted ghouls in the galleries. It’s ok if your skin crawls…  just don’t let your team crawl.

Our hunts are team events, so grab your friends and sign up together. If you have less than 4 people in your group, you will be joined with others at the start to form a larger team.

Watson Adventures Scavenger Hunts use witty, tricky questions in fast-paced games that bring out the best in a city. Explore museums, neighborhoods, zoos and more with our wide range of acclaimed hunts, in New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and beyond.
