How It Works

Maybe you’d like to solve a mystery that’s a little less, um, murdery. Here it is! In this virtual art museum scavenger hunt, an unknown figure in the art world has stolen a masterpiece, replaced it with a forgery, and now is taunting the police—and you—to spot the fake, find the last masterpiece, and identify the forger. Are you up for the challenge?

On teams, via Zoom, your group will explore a wide variety of websites for museums across America, searching for works of art that reveal clues for your investigation. The forger has included random close-up images of artwork that might, or might not, provide the key to unraveling the mystery.


What to Expect

Along the way, you might need to brave a confrontation with a menacing skeleton at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, think really small to search a tiny kitchen at The Art Institute of Chicago, take a closer look at yourself at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, or hold the hand of the headless horseman at the American Art Museum. 

And those are just a few of the many stops along the way to a solution. Good news: You don’t need any previous knowledge of art or museums. You just need sharp eyes, a desktop computer, and great teamwork. Our game host will check in with you along the way to make sure you’re having fun—and that you bring the forger to justice.
