Star Wars Scavenger Hunts at the American Museum of Natural History this December

An indoor scavenger hunt is a great idea when it’s cold outside. And I’m not talking about scavenging for Christmas presents or doing other shopping. Timed with the upcoming release of Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, there’s a new scavenger hunt that will test your knowledge of Star Wars past.  Brought to you by Watson Adventures, The Museum Strikes Back Scavenger Hunt will take place on December 5 and 12 for adults, with a family version on December 30 at the American Museum of Natural History. The way it works is that you’ll be asked questions that test your knowledge of the movies and you’ll have to relate the information to items that you’ll find in the museum. The clues that you decipher will lead you to objects on display where you’ll have to answer a question about the object. And so it continues.  Without giving away too much, you’ll be wandering around the beasts in the Hall of Mammals, searching among bugs in the Hall of Biodiversity, visiting ferocious humans in the halls of African and Asian Peoples, and more. There’s pretty much something to find in every hall in the museum. Happy holidays and happy hunting!  You can buy tickets online or call 877-9-GO-HUNT, extension 22.

A British Weekend Tour

If you’re British and have a few vacation days to fly across the pond, then there are a few places that should be on your must-see list – and we’re not talking about the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building and Ellis Island, as nice as they are.

All Brits are fans of The Beatles (so are we if truth be told) so take the subway and head for 72nd Street to begin your tour.
