Explore Elkhart County Historical Museum through a scavenger hunt
ELKHART COUNTY, Ind. -- The Elkhart County Historical Museum is having a scavenger hunt on Saturday, September 5 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“When people come, they get a full experience of the museum so there is at least one question in each of our exhibits,” said Curator of Education Patrick McGuire.
The free scavenger hunt event will lead guests through the entire museum. There are a total of eight exhibits at the museum, three of those exhibits are located on the main floor and five on the top floor.
“On the main floor we have our crossroads of Elkhart County which kind of tells a complete history of the county and then upstairs we have a themed exhibit," McGuire said.
There are around 10 questions on the scavenger hunt form that will take participants through the museum to find clues and specific items. Questions will be about the history of native culture or a historical figure. The scavenger hunt will also feature their newest exhibit, Crossroads of Elkhart County: Making a Place which is found on the main floor. It explores the history of Elkhart County from the arrival of trains in 1851 to today.
"This is the first time that our audiences to see the brand new exhibit, which is completed a three-year re-design of our main floor galleries, so we’re excited about that, McGuire said.
