The Great Museum Treasure Hunt 2017

Completing its 3rd year the Great Museum Treasure Hunt was the BEST it’s ever been.


The Museum saw 256  kids participate this summer at least one time.

Of those 87 became members of the “Persistent Pursers Club” and will be attending a special PPC Night at the Museum Party this Winter and are now eligible for prizes throughout the school year through the PPC punch card program.

Of those 87 – 26 had perfect attendance for all 8 weeks and received gold certificates.


Those 256 children collectively made 791 visits to the museum over the 8 weekends - hunting for and learning about artifacts in the museum. FANTASTIC!!!

This means that Treasure Hunt Sponsor Leono’s Restaurant and the Rohs Opera House each gave 791 coupons for free pizzas and Movie Passes.


Caroline VanHook 7th grader at Harrison County Middle School – daughter of Sandy and Robby VanHook won the GRAND PRIZE of 2 Gold 2018 season passes to Kings Island sponsored by Field & Main Bank.


We can’t thank our sponsors  enough for making this year’s Treasure Hunt the most successful yet. Leono’s Restaurant - free pizzas for every participant every week, Rohs Opera House – movie passes for every participant every week, Field & Main Bank – grand prize (2) Gold  Kings Island Season Passes, Avi’s Oven Art , Farmer’s Deposit Bank , and  J J’s for the items in our our weekly Cookies Cash and Cupcakes drawing , and The Cynthiana Democrat for posting and printing all the information each week for this year’s Hunt.
