A scavenger hunt is giving Kenyan families a chance to learn more about the national museum. Through an event organised by the Kenya Museum Society (KMS), the 'Thrill of the Hunt' will see families not only test their knowledge of Kenyan museums but also win a group prize.
Targeting members of the Kenya Museum Society, the scavenger hunt aims to promote an understanding of museums in Kenya.
“We would like to ensure that people both citizens and foreigners know more about museums in the country”, said the event organiser Dorothy Mkala.
The hunt will see teams of three to six people answer questions and carry out some tasks in order to get clues and win the competition.
This contest is also open to children.
“The teams can comprise of children aged 8 years and above,” commented Dorothy.
“ There are however some six and seven year olds who know quite a lot about the museum and we will not turn them down,” added the event organiser.
The competition will take place on Saturday 13th June for two hours from 10am. Contestants are advised to carry lunch for a picnic to take place later in the garden. Light refreshments will also be available.
The scavenger hunt costs Sh3500 per team. The rate for student teams will be discounted to cost Sh2000 per team. Registration is to be done by Wednesday 10th June either by booking a place via phone on 074 255 299 or sending an email.
