Saturday August 21, 2010 / NoonScavenger Hunt and Tour of Newseum with Post-Tour Reception
555 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20001
How was your experience?
It was a little disorganized at first (we were supposed to meet at the group entrance, but there was no one there, went to the main entrance and no one was there, then eventually we found them at the main entrance). After that, though, it was a lot of fun. We started around 12:30 and met back around 3, so that actually gave us some time to see the exhibits as well as answer the questions. I think they changed the format a bit after some of the comments from a prior group. Also they tallied the results and told us the winner when we met back, prior to going to the reception. I agree, it would have been nice to start earlier so we could tour the newseum afterward. In fact that's what we did, just that we were kind of limited in the time we had. I'm glad they put it together, because I probably wouldn't have decided to visit that place on my own. I have seen more interesting scavenger hunts, but in some ways it was nice to not be rushed.
