The DaVinci Adventure

Our facilitators meet your team in the lobby and send you off on a giant puzzle that can only be solved by teams finding clues within the world’s great art of the museum.  Not a race (but we will have a winner).

Why this event?

The DaVinci Adventure program started out as a rain alternative back in 2006 for MSNBC who couldn’t work with a rain date for a Central Park team builder they had planned. The “DaVinci Code” movie was a hit at the time, so we quickly designed an art-inspired team building event that brought them to the wonderful galleries of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We even were able to find an exact replica of the “cryptex” from the movie which added to the theme.  Now, this 3-hour team builder has a life of its own as we have just delivered it in the 25th different museum (Phoenix Art Museum) in the last nine years. Combining strategy, time management, communication skills and plain old art appreciation, the DaVinci’s art-inspired team building program, makes your half day team meeting very special.

Teams use detailed maps while interacting with the museum pieces and artwork searching for clues that will help them break the mysterious Cryptex Code. Your sleuths must first navigate to the right piece of artwork, then detect the correct answer within each piece.

The climax occurs when a team finally gets to open the chest itself. This grand opening can take place within the museum, at a nearby restaurant, or at your meeting. You supply the treasure, we’ll supply the excitement.
