Scavenger Hunts

Are you the parent of a homeschooled student? Or just looking for an educational activity to do at the Museum.

The Scavenger Hunts were developed for elementary, middle, and high school aged students and are available in the Museum's gift shop or they can emailed out ahead of time. Designed as scavenger hunts, they require the visitor to explore museum galleries for answers to questions on the worksheets.

Once done, answers may be checked at the front desk.

This activity--available by special request only--is a scavenger hunt game meant to be played either as a single group or can be split up into multiple teams. If playing in multiple groups, the first team to find all the clues wins!

An initial clue will be handed out to the team(s), then they will be sent on their way to find the next 12 clues spread throughout our various galleries. All clues and answers are related to something on display. Answers to the clues are to be found by scanning the QR codes--these codes will only be up while the game is in play. If interested contact the Museum to set up a game day for your group! 
 
Expert Level: This photo scavenger hunt is for the experts! Try your eyes and identify extreme close-ups of various displays and photos from around the galleries.
