Register For Free

Calling all New York City film buffs! Explore one of the world’s most cinematic cities, discover legendary landmarks, and feel the movie magic as you and your team solve clues in our daylong scavenger hunt. 
In honor of the Museum’s 100th birthday, teams will solve clues in connection with the Museum’s centennial exhibition, This Is New York: 100 Years of the City in Art and Pop Culture.  Manhattan has served as a backdrop for countless movies, from West Side Story to Rosemary’s Baby to The Royal Tenenbaums to The Wolf of Wall Street.  In one adventurous day, you’ll experience New York City stories as told by directors, screenwriters, and cinematographers.  It takes grit and determination to make it in both the film industry and New York City.  Do you and your team have what it takes to hold the Keys to the City?

Become a champion of the city we call home and help the Museum to continue telling our collective New York story for another 100 years by sharing your fundraising page with friends and family.
