The Great Museum Treasure Hunt is an event hosted each summer by the Cynthiana Harrison County Museum.

K-12 students are able to participate in the eight-week-long event!

How does the hunt work?

Look for a picture of the week's artifact on our Facebook page, the Cynthiana Democart, or come on to the Museum

Search high and low in the museum for the pictured artifact. Once you found it read all the information about it.

Come back to a volunteer to answer a few questions about what you learned.

When all your answers are correct you recive a prize! You will also be able to put your name in the jar for weekly and grand prizes!
