The Secrets of Old Philadelphia Scavenger Hunt for Kids

Recommended by

Kids and adults join forces on a fun, funny scavenger hunt in the historic heart of Old Philadelphia. You’ll follow a path of clues in the area around Independence Hall and answer tricky, entertaining questions about what you find. This game is especially well suited for school groups that want to walk—and skip and hop—in the Founding Fathers’ footsteps.

Along the way, you might uncover…

  • The bygone burial ground beneath Washington Square Park
  • A place where Alexander Hamilton enjoyed music (though probably not rap)
  • The streets of Society Hill, where James Madison and other Founding Fathers walked
  • The Signer’s Garden, on the site where George Washington sat for a portrait
  • Carpenters’ Hall, where the Continental Congress first met

And, of course, there’s much more! If you’ve got a group of kids itching for a hilarious, time-traveling adventure, this is the hunt for you. No previous knowledge of the neighborhood or its history is required: you just need sharp eyes and good teamwork. Each team must include at least one adult.
