SCIENCE & ART SCAVENGER HUNT TO TAKE PLACE AT MATHEWS PARK
June 6 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm$5
The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum will launch a Scavenger Hunt on Sunday, June 6, 12-4 p.m. at Mathews Park, Norwalk, CT in collaboration with Stepping Stones Museum for Children, the Center for Contemporary Printmaking, Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County and The Norwalk Art Space.
Participants will search for clues among architectural details, hidden messages, signage, and objects located on and around the exterior facades of all five buildings and inside the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum. Scavenger hunters will have to bring their power of observation, A-Game, and problem-solving skills as they play alone or in small socially-distant teams. Children must be accompanied by an adult or legal guardian.
Scavenger Hunt tickets are $5 per person and must be purchased online at www.lockwoodmathewsmansion.com. The event will have multiple entry times within the 12-4 p.m. time frame to allow for social distancing. During ticket purchase, participants will be prompted to choose a time to begin the hunt. All tickets for the Scavenger Hunt include admission to the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum. No discounts can be offered to LMMM members but participation will serve as a donation to a great cause! Prizes will be awarded to the lucky winners.
