Go seek: Take a photo scavenger hunt through our new Hall of Ancient Egypt

July 9, 2013

We’re getting active on the blog today. Rather than tell you all about a new exhibit or reveal the quirks of some of our curatorial staff, this entry requires some effort on your part.

In order to fully enjoy today’s post, you’ll have to get your tuchus to 5555 Hermann Dr., where you might have heard a little something about a new Hall of Ancient Egypt:

Egpyt Photo Scavenger Hunt

Our education department teamed up to take stock of the new hall — which is teeming with artifacts from the earliest investigations to those examined with 21st-century technology — and created an engaging Egyptian scavenger hunt.

    My daughter would love to do this activity, so I clicked on the link to print the pages and the link goes nowhere. Could you provide this to me? Also, are there any other photo scavenger hunts for other areas of the museum? We’ve thought of creating our own for all over the museum, but the photography policy makes that difficult. Thanks, in advance, for your help!

    The scavenger hunts you’ve requested should be waiting for you in you inbox.

    We would love to do this too! Can you please send the scavenger hints to me as well?

    Is it still possible to obtain a copy of this scavenger hunt? We will be visiting the museum next week and would love to do this with our son, as we will be studying Ancient History in school this year.
