50 Clues & 1 Grand Prize. Unlock secret places, historic haunts, and new views as you and your team solve clues in our daylong scavenger hunt. Teams will solve clues in five of the Bronx’s most vibrant neighborhoods: Belmont, Fordham Heights, Crotona, Concourse, and Mott Haven. These neighborhoods are home to everything from the Bronx’s Little Italy to Fordham University to The Bronx Museum of Arts to the New York Yankees. Participants can expect to stroll down Arthur Avenue, discover the Bronx’s notable art and architecture, and take in the memorable sights and sounds of the borough where Hip-Hop was born!
In one adventurous day, you’ll encounter the past, present, and future of the Bronx as you document your journey, all while helping us raise vital funds to support the Museum. This past year has proven that it takes grit and determination to make it in New York. Do you and your friends have what it takes to hold the Keys to the City?

As of April 1, 2022, the Museum has paused our vaccination and mask requirements. Guests are welcome to wear a mask if they so choose. Any updates to our COVID policies will be posted at All clues are located outdoors, and the Hunt is designed to be done in a safe, socially distant manner.

Registration closes at 11:59pm on Thursday, May 12.

Please note the scavenger hunt clues are written with adult users in mind and not specifically pitched at a younger audience. Please keep this in mind if you choose to bring children.
