Before Your Visit

Engage with our diverse natural history collections!

Our Museum Educators came together to create uniquely informational yet absolutely fun scavenger hunts. From taking a closer look at Endangered and Extinct exhibits, to experiencing the far-out Solar System presentation on the Omniglobe, or getting a chance to draw your most favorite bear, Closer Look Scavenger Hunts are bound to bring joy to your visit.

Are you visiting with a class? Take a peek at our "Closer Looks" for scavenger hunts based on objects on the main floor and exhibits around the museum. Designed and categorized by grade levels, they are available at our front desk along with clipboards and pencils but we encourage all schools to go ahead and bring the scavenger hunt they wish to embark on!  Volunteers at the front desk are there to help you with any questions you may have.
