Museum hosting old fashioned Scavenger Hunt

The Golden Museum is bringing some old fashioned fun to town this fall with the revival of their traditional scavenger hunt.

The Golden Museum is bringing some old fashioned fun to town this fall with the revival of their traditional scavenger hunt.

“We did it years ago. It was successful and a lot of fun,” said Colleen Palumbo, executive director of the Golden Museum.

Teams can sign up for the event, and hunt down the items on the list. Although the list will contain roughly 100 items, it’s unlikely any team will be able to get them all.

“It’s possible to get them all, I know that all these items are available in town. But it’s very unlikely, especially during the time limit,” said Palumbo. “Each item will be assigned a point value, and we’ll add up all the teams’ points to determine a winner.”

Items on the list could include things like a garden pink flamingo, or a tube of Preparation H.

Teams are allowed to purchase these items if they wish, but the museum is encouraging people to spend as little money as possible, and instead find other ways of acquiring the items.

“Most of these things you should be able to talk people out of,” said Palumbo. Of course she does not encourage stealing, but in the past people have either been able to barter, or take items on the promise that they would be returned.

Once a team has gotten all their items, or has run out of time, just bring everything back to the museum to be tallied. There will be a cash barbecue, and some prizes for the winners.

The museum is asking for teams of four to sign up, however any singles who are interested in participating can contact Palumbo, and she will do her best to match up teams.

“We think this will be a lot of fun, and hopefully we get a lot of teams out participating,” said Palumbo.

The scavenger hunt takes place on Saturday Sept. 20 from 10 a.m. to noon. Meet at the museum at 9:30 a.m. (Must pre-register teams prior to 9:30 a.m. on the day). The cost is $40 per team, and all proceeds will go to the museum. For more information, or to inquire about finding a team, contact Palumbo at museum.golden@gmail.com.
