"Elementary, My Dear Watson!"

Join Mr. Sherlock Holmes in his Hunt for History, a scavenger hunt for kids Pre-K to 12th Grade. Mr. Holmes will be traveling through 12,000 years of Augusta, Georgia's history as he discovers the odd and mysterious.

You will need to bring pencils and the worksheets for your group the day of your visit. All of the questions are taken from the 1st floor exhibits, Augustas Story and the Transportation Corridor.

The Hunt for History with Mr. Holmes is free with Museum admission.

Print your Hunt for History sheets according to grade level or topic and bring them with you on your next visit.
