Follow Text Message Clues To Find Treasure In London Museums

The concept here is simple. Sign up to Breadcrumbs, pick a museum in London, and get sent cryptic clues to your phone that will send you on an enigmatic trail, showing you the best parts of the location you’ve chosen. The cluexs will be a mixture of mysterious riddles and puzzles, and Breadcrumbs will tell you where to go and what to find (but only after you’ve cracked the cryptic instructions, of course). Once you’ve found the objects around the museum and/or solved the riddles, you just text them back with your answer in order to receive the next clue. They’ll even send you hints if you get stuck!

At the moment, you can purchase scavenger hunts for the V&A Museum, Kew Gardens and a Handel and Hendrix tour, as well as a brand new trail at the Natural History Museum, giving you the chance to meet Hope the Whale and explore the newly reopened Hintze Hall. New trails at the Imperial War Museum and the Huntarian Museum are also a work in progress, so keep an eye out for those. The hunts cost £3.99 each and take approximately 2 hours, taking you around the best parts of the museum.

Head to the Breadcrumbs website to start the game.
