The Conquer the Carnegie Museums Scavenger Hunt

One hunt, two museums—double the fun!

Whoever said less is more didn’t go on this scavenger hunt, which shows you the best of two great museums under one roof: the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. From triceratops to Seurat, from dioramas to Degas, and from mummified pharaohs to colorful van Goghs, you’ll explore it all on this team-building trek by following clues through the exhibits in search of answers to tricky, humorous questions.

You might tackle challenges like these…

  • Enter the Hall of Architecture and pass someone who makes you say “D’oh!” Continue toward icy doors. Who or what is unlucky enough to have “snake eyes”? Answer: Past a bust of Homer and near doors from Iceland, a sheep or ram skull has a snake wriggling through its eye sockets.
  • Visit Dinosaurs in Their Time, a room of old bones. What “shady lady” first sold seashells by the seashore? Answer: Mary Awning, the fossil hunter who inspired the famous tongue twister. (Awning, shady…get it?)

The questions are designed so that you can figure out the answer only when you’re standing in the right spot. No knowledge of the museum or its contents is necessary to play or to win: you just need to pay attention to the details, use your wits, and work well with your team.

For ages 7 and up, the Kids Edition is great for school field trips.

Care to make it a mystery? A Murder Mystery Edition is also available.
