The #RVAHistoryHunt is a collaboration by Richmond cultural organizations to present a unique scavenger hunt experience. Launched on National Scavenger Hunt Day (May 24, 2020), this initiative has been carefully tailored to create a new way of engaging with the Richmond community while being aware of the unique challenges brought about by the COVID-19 global pandemic.
There are two available scavenger hunts in which you can participate – while practicing safe social distancing – with your family, roommates, or on your own. You will also have the opportunity to enter to win museum shop discounts and items from participating locations!
Physical Scavenger Hunt: Walk or drive around the Richmond area to locate specific items at participating museums.
Snap a photo of the object and tag both the museum location and #RVAHistoryHunt on Instagram, Facebook, and/or Twitter.
Continue on your journey until all stops are completed
Digital Scavenger Hunt: Access the Digital Scavenger Hunt here.Then, search the websites of participating organizations looking for specific images, facts, or other content to answer the questions for the #RVAHistoryHunt.
