Discover all that the American Museum of Natural History has to offer in fun new way! You will help solve the mystery of what happened to Dino Dave while socializing and exploring the many halls with other fun people from NYSN and other social networking groups. You will be teamed up with others ( unless you already have a team ) and set out on an afternoon adventure that you won’t forget!

The Story:

Dino Dave is an avid member of dozens of meet up groups. He is also a huge fan of the Museum of Natural History where several Meet Up groups are hosting a scavenger hunt. Sadly for Dave he has made more enemies than friends at past Meet Up events because of his abrasive and inappropriate behavior. Dave registered in the morning but never made it back. It is up to you and your team to find out what happened! You may even be part of the plot and don’t even know it!

The Hunt will take you through the many exhibits at the museum as you look for clues and answers to the questions about what Dave did that day. Each team will have 90 Minutes to follow the social media postings from Dave that day to find as many clues as possible. At the end of your time you will return to Brad’s to put together your final answers. While we tally up the scores you can enjoy food and drinks (pay as you go).

How does it work? The group will meet at Brad’s Burgers at 11am. We will put you on a team (if you don’t already have one) and give your team a sheet with about 30 different clues that you will need to find the answers to in the museum.

Can I come alone? Yes, 98% of those attending this event will likely register on their own. You welcome to bring as many non member guests, friends & co workers as you’d like, just make sure to register for the number of people that you want below. Our staff will be ready to greet you and introduce you to others whether you are on your own or with guests. We will put you on a team if you don’t already have one (which most people won’t)
