MIT Mystery Hunt 2023 will be the 43rd iteration of the MIT Mystery Hunt, with kickoff set to occur on January 13th, 2023. Run by teammate, the hunt's website is modelled to resemble the website of a museum, drawing attention to exhibits and inviting people to celebrate a 'grand opening'.

Plot[edit | edit source]

This hunt's plot is currently unknown, and will be revealed over the course of its run in January of 2023. However, a general theme of museums and archives is present in pre-hunt media.
