A scavenger hunt is a fun addition to a day at the museum. Not only does it help children focus on all the finer details, it also gives them something to do when they have to wait their turn at one of the activities.

This museum hunt is customized for the Betty Brinn Children's Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but can be used as an example to create a hunt for any museum.

There are two parts to this hunt. One is a question and answer page consisting of 20 questions about the exhibits found throughout the museum. The other is a picture hunt that includes graphics of small portions of items in the museum. Children have to figure out what exhibit area the items are part of.

Below are samples of the question and picture portions of the hunt, as well as links to the complete printable lists. Use one or both for your hunt. The picture page will take longer to download, especially is you have a slower internet connection speed.

Please Note: You will need Adobe Reader installed on your computer to view these printable pages, (the latest version is recommended). You can get your free Adobe Reader here (a new window will open so you can download without leaving this page).
