A Night at The Museum: team building & treasure hunts at IWM London

Team-building activities at IWM London are all about exploration and innovation.

Offered as part of the Day Delegate Package and for those booking an evening dinner or reception, The Imperial War Museum now offers an interactive treasure hunt to corporate clients! Peyton Events – who manage conferencing and banqueting at IWM London – worked with entertainment specialists, Wildgoose, to develop the experience. The trail is great fun, a greater challenge and makes the most of IWM’s fantastic and fascinating exhibitions: allowing participants engage with stories surrounding war in a unique and exciting way.

Showcased in April, guests were split into different teams and each team was given a tablet loaded with challenges and a map. They then navigated around the game-screen unlocking a series of rooms, answering questions and completing tasks: multiple choice questions, video challenges, taking photos and locating invisible treasures.

That evening, Peyton Events also re-designed its food offering for those taking part, with informal food stations and bowl dishes replacing a formal buffet or seated meal. Vodka cured smoked salmon blinis and bowls of five spice and honey roasted duck with Asian slaw and citrus dressing were served to fuel the fun. Classic dessert options such as miniature Eton mess and Pimm’s strawberry and cucumber jelly shots were a great touch and throw-back to a simpler time.

The treasure hunt took guests through a variety of spaces, including the building’s magnificent Atrium – the main hall, featuring a rare Battle of Britain Spitfire suspended from the 25m high vaulted ceiling. This journey demonstrated what IWM London has to offer as an exemplary events and conferencing venue – a versatile, contemporary and culturally engaged space – though we think guests were a little too involved in finding hidden treasures at the time…
