An Omaha Magazine and Joslyn Art Museum Collaboration

Joslyn Art Museum’s education team came up with a list of 10 fun scavenger hunt questions that relate to the travel/adventure theme of Omaha Magazine's new May/June issue (omahamagazine.com). 

IMPORTANT: Upon completion of the survey, please immediately e-mail editor@omahamagazine with your preferred contact info. The survey is otherwise anonymous and we cannot identify winners of prizes.

Questions were designed so that active exploration of the museum is necessary to come up with answers. We hope you enjoy the adventure!

Possible prizes will be announced at the Omaha Magazine launch party on Monday, April 30, at Joslyn. The first three people to accurately complete the scavenger hunt will receive prizes from Omaha Magazine advertisers.
