Starting at 7pm, competing families will attempt to be the first to complete a free, Museum-wide scavenger hunt as part of the Museum's Science Thursday programming. 

For one hour, family teams will roam through the Museum and the new Nature Research Center looking for answers to questions and performing short experiments. The winning teams will be announced in the Daily Planet Theater at the conclusion. 

Prizes from Great Outdoor Provision Co. and the Museum Store as well as Dinosaurs in Motion exhibit passes and more will be awarded to winning teams in two categories: Friends of the Museum members and General Public.

Are there age restrictions?  All ages of family members are welcome; however, each team must include someone 18 or older.  

What is a family?  Team members should be a family in spirit if not by DNA or legal documentation.  This event is for families and family-like teams.
