Do you have what it takes to be a History Detective?

Use your detective skills and learn about the history of the people, places, and things at the Museum. The Augusta Museum of History invites youth and their families to celebrate local history with these fun and educational scavenger hunts through the Augusta's Story and Transportation Corridor exhibits on the 1st Floor. Travel through 12,000 years of Augusta, Georgia's history and discover the odd and the mysterious.

What better way to discover all that the Museum has to offer than by searching through the Museum on your own. Make your way through the Museum following clues. Each clue leads to a different artifact or exhibit area and helps visitors learn more about Augusta and the surrounding area. The scavenger hunts force participants to read signage on displays and think critically.

Scavenger Hunts are available on an ongoing basis with a variety of topics available. Some of the options are listed below.

Famous Faces from Augusta
Augusta African Americans
Civil Rights
Civil War

Museum Elf Scavenger Hunt (Available in July & December only)
Modes of Transportation: County, Shapes & Colors
