Sleuthing and Scavenger Hunts: Inside Museum Hack’s “Escape the Met” Experience

What do you get when you combine the thrill of an Escape Room with the energy of a Museum Hack tour at the Metropolitan Museum of Art?

A whirlwind, narrative-based, team building puzzle we call Escape the Met!

These rooms are filled with clues and elements that guests must utilize in order to “escape” in a certain amount of time; you’re not actually locked in, but it feels like it! Around the country (and around the world!), Escape Rooms have become a popular team building exercise!

Guests use pieces of “evidence” like these postcards to solve puzzles.
