Visit Materials

During your visit to the Museum you may want to provide your students with materials to direct and focus their experience. To that end, we have created a number of mystery hunts that you are welcome to download, print and reproduce. PLEASE NOTE that on many mornings, particularly in the spring, some exhibit halls will be closed for programs and students will not be able to get into certain halls to answer some of the questions – it is impossible for us to predict these closures very far in advance, but please contact our scheduler two or three days before your scheduled visit to find out more. Also, please bring pencils and clipboards or something else to write on.
