Scavenger Hunts

We have seven scavenger hunts to choose from. These hunts can be done instead of a guided tour (same cost as tour) or in addition to a guided tour or educational program for a $10/class fee plus tax.


Museum Scavenger Hunts (available year-round)

Option 1: This picture-based scavenger hunt has students finding artefacts in five different business-related or job-related exhibits – the Alaska Highway News, Dr. Szilagyi’s dentist office, the schoolhouse, the outpost hospital, and the trapper’s cabin.  This hunt is aimed at kindergarten through grade three. This hunt takes about 20 minutes to complete.

Option 2: This picture-based scavenger hunt has students searching for useful items in our kitchen, bedroom, schoolroom, trapper’s cabin, and blacksmith displays.  Aimed at kindergarten through grade three, this hunt takes about 20 minutes.

Option 3:

Focusing on historic places and buildings, this question-based scavenger hunt is aimed at middle school and high school students and takes about 30 to 45 minutes to complete.


Heritage Building Scavenger Hunts (only available May through September)

Please note: Our heritage building scavenger hunts are only available from mid-May through September as our historic buildings are closed when temperatures fall to 0˚C overnight.

Choose from two different photo-based scavenger hunts that take students around the museum’s yard, looking at oil and gas equipment, a chapel, a police barracks and jail, a trapper’s cabin, and a pioneer cabin.  These scavenger hunts take about 20 minutes to complete.

The question-based scavenger hunt is aimed at older children (grade four and up). It asks questions about the historic buildings and equipment around the museum yard.


Then and Now Scavenger Hunt

Connect the past and the present through the Fort St. John North Peace Museum’s Then & Now Scavenger Hunt. Search for historic artefacts grouped around four themes: jobs, medical/dental, transportation, and pioneer home. Students will find objects and answer questions about similarities and differences between the past and present. Aimed at Grades 2 and up (or kindergarten/Grade 1 if groups led by teacher/adults who can write answers to discussion questions). This scavenger hunt takes 20-30 minutes to complete.
