From Hidden Figures to Icons: An African American Museum Scavenger Hunt

Black History Comes alive

…on this scavenger hunt that reveals the best of the Culture and Community Galleries in one of the new jewels in the Smithsonian museums crown.

On teams, you’ll follow clues that guide you through the galleries to find amazing objects and answer fascinating questions about them. No previous knowledge of the museum or Black history is required: you just need sharp eyes and comfy shoes.

Scavenger hunt highlights include…

  • Muhammed Ali’s boxing gloves and other sports hero memorabilia
  • Chuck Berry’s gleaming red Cadillac
  • Laughs with Richard Pryor and Moms Mabley
  • Personal items used by James Baldwin and other famous authors
  • A visit to the Bronx, the birthplace of Hip Hop

The scavenger hunt includes Photo Challenges and a Bonus Challenge with the Hunt Host. This game is great for corporate groups promoting diversity, or school groups on field trips, or anyone who wants to learn more about Black culture.
