The Atlanta History Mysteries Scavenger Hunt

Time-travel to bygone Atlanta…

…on a fun, funny team-building adventure at this eclectic museum. The combination of fascinating indoor exhibits and outdoor re-creations of places past makes this a location with something for everyone. You’ll uncover remarkable secrets and little-known facts about the Atlanta of pioneer times to the modern metropolis, including the Civil War, famous figures in the arts and sports, unusual folk art, and more.

You might search for answers to such questions as…

  • Find a fire drill in a place seemingly named by Scrooge. What is the name of the place where you might think fish spend the night? Answer: Trout House Hotel, in a photo of firemen in Humbug Square.
  • Look into a place on Auburn where the counterman can set you up with a Royalist. But bakers better beat it: according to the sign, what’s not allowed? Answer: A photo of the Auburn Avenue Smoke Shop, with the Royalist brand for sale, has a sign that says, “No Loafing Allowed.”
  • One jug can see its face in a mirror—yet it also can’t see its face in the mirror. What kind of person is it? Answer: It’s a two-faced politician jug.

No knowledge of Atlanta or the museum is necessary: you just need to pay attention to the details, use your wits, and work with your team.

Also available: the Murder at the History Center Scavenger Hunt, which adds a whodunit where details about objects on display reveal clues to a tale of international intrigue.

The AHC is also, of course, a great destination for a school field trip, and the Kids Edition of this hunt makes for a fantastic, fun way to get kids and adults to explore it together. Suitable for ages 7 and up.
