Create an Audio Tour

We love helping people make scavenger hunts.

Over the years we’ve noticed that people use for all sorts of projects, activities and events. A short list of examples include:

  • Corporate events
  • Romantic gifts
  • Fun day activity for kids
  • Tours around museums and art events
  • Educational exams for kids
  • Feedback surveys

The creativity of our users always surprises and excites us. We’re glad that people not only use TextClues to create scavenger hunts but also for a number of other activities.

We specifically noticed more people using TextClues as a way to have a fun experience at museums and art galleries. This interest makes we want to introduce a great new tool for making educational and entertaining tours –! is a tool that lets anyone create an audio tour for free in minutes. There is no need to record you voice either – once you type the text the audio is created using state of the art technology. Creating an audio tour is simple:

  1. You sign up and verify your email address
  2. You add a title, description and image to describe the tour
  3. You add a title, description and image for each stop along the tour
  4. You share you tour and teach people something new!

So if you have any interest in creating an audio guide for your organization or even you should do it now, it’ll only take a minute!

Museum Scavenger Hunt

Interested in a fun and educational day out with your kids? Well with a little bit of time you can create a fun day they won’t forget. The only problem is they might keep asking for another scavenger hunt as soon as possible!

Museums are great places for kids to learn because they are so interesting once you get the kids engaged. TextClues is a great new way to use technology to get kids interested in the exhibits and excited about learning. It allows you to create clues that will be sent to any mobile phone using text messages. When you answer a clue correctly the next clue is sent and when you answer it incorrectly it tells you to “try again”. You can see it in action using the demo.

This allows you to create a brand new experience for your kids that is sure to amaze.  They will be wondering how you did it. You can even say that the questions are coming from an adventurer who needs answers to his/her important questions.

It will only take a short visit to the museum beforehand to prepare the adventure. Quickly go through the museum and pick out interesting facts that you know your child would be interested in. If you are going with a few children then you might want to pick out different clues for each one. You will be able to enter all these clues into the computer in minutes then schedule the hunt to start when you’re heading to the museum.

As you walk through the museum with the kids you can enjoy each exhibit together and they will be excitedly looking for the answer to their next clue.

Here’s an example of how a hunt might start:

Clue: Hi, my name is Dr. Swill. I am an explorer and I need your help! Could you find some answers for me at the museum today? Please tell me “yes”

Answer: Yes

Clue: Perfect! When you first walk into the door you will see a big dinosaur skeleton. What is that dinosaur’s name?

Answer: trex, tyrannosaurus

Clue: Ahh just as I expected. Now can you find the name of the woman who helped Louis and Clark along their journey? …
