Summer Scavenger Hunt Across Middlesex County

July 1 - November 30

Free

Explore history across Middlesex County’s three museums with Scavify’s scavenger hunt app.

Want to explore history with technology, experiencing 350 years in a day? There’s an app for that.

The Museums of Middlesex in Saluda, Deltaville and Urbanna, Va. are pleased to announce that the Scavify app-driven scavenger hunt is available for residents and visitors to explore through December 2017.

The Scavify app, which can be downloaded on a smart phone or tablet, allows visitors to the Deltaville Maritime Museum, Middlesex Museum and Urbanna Museum to get hands on while exploring history and exhibits through scanning QR codes, snapping photos and answering trivia questions. Challenges earn players points along the way, and ultimately bragging rights when completed.

Players are encouraged to start the scavenger hunt at any of the three museums, where there are roughly 10 questions to answer per location.

To complete the scavenger hunt, players need to visit all three locations:

To download and participate, players should follow these directions:

  • Go to Google Play or App Store.
  • In the Search bar type “Scavify” and install. SKIP if asks for account set-up or a credit card.
  • Wait for it to install.
  • OPEN Scavify app and create a personal account, which will require a user name, email address and password.
  • Under “hunts” search for and select “MOM Scavenger Hunt.”
  • Start playing.

The password is “history” to the scavenger hunt instructions. Each participant will receive a gift (a Museums of Middlesex aluminum water  bottle) for participating and will be entered into a drawing for a $100 cash prize, selected on December 1.

Good luck exploring history in Middlesex!
