The Great Museum Treasure Hunt Returns!

The 2023 Great Museum Treasure Hunt 

will be kicking off Friday June 9th with 8 weekends of historic artifacts for kids to hunt! Weekly drawings for "Cookies and Cash" Free Pizza and Ice Cream coupons for all participants and everyone gets a chance at the Grand Prize drawing for a $250.00 cash prize. 


 This summer's theme is "Tools for Living"!

Come join the fun and learn about Farming, Building, Survival, Home Making, Utilities, and the many other tools we use for living. Each weekend a different tool in the museum will be showcased. Photos of the tool will be available.  Participants will search for it, read about it, answer some questions and walk away with coupons for pizza, ice cream cones, and most important, more knowledge of our local history. 

          The Hunt is open to all school age children K-12               Every Friday and Saturday beginning June 9th - July 29th. That's 8 weeks of fun!
