A fun site to hold a team building scavenger hunt in Mumbai
Event Description: Now called the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, the Prince of Wales Museum of Western India, is one of the premier art and history museum in India. Situated on the southern tip of Mumbai on the ‘Crescent Site’, the Museum building is a fine example of the Indo-Saracenic style of architecture. Climate controlled with minimal walking, the museum is a great place to beat the heat while exploring the many fascinating galleries, featuring stone sculptures, miniature painting, Himalayan artifacts, Asian porcelains and so much more.
Constructed starting from 1904 to commemorate the visit of the Prince of Wales, the future King George V, the museum was said to embody ” the pomp and height at which the British Raj was moving ahead with their ambitious plans, in building the great metropolis Bombay”. Completed in 1915, it was used as a Children’s Welfare Centre and a Military Hospital during the First World War, before being handed inaugurated as a museum in 1922. In 1998 the Museum was renamed Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya after the warrior king and founder of the Maratha Empire.
Here’s Dr. Clue himself, Dave Blum, sharing his thoughts about this teambuilding scavenger hunt:
During your corporate teambuilding treasure hunt…expect to see a bandaged thumb (although not literally), a prayer by a president, a metal peacock and a preening parrot, a trumpet made from human bone,and lots more.
Not every corporate team building program is the same. Depending on your group, your focus may be integrating new people into the team and breaking down personal boundaries and divisions. Or you may have an existing department where teams could, with a little practice, cooperate and communicate more smoothly across teams and divisions. Or you might simply have a group that thrives on the use of technology. Let Dr. Clue customize your hunt program by selecting the content focus that best matches your group and your needs.
