Guided Tours, Scavenger Hunts, and Pre- and Post-Visit Activities at the Hudson’s Hope Museum

GUIDED TOURS

The Hudson’s Hope Museum provides guided tours for all age groups. Staff and volunteers, who share the history of Hudson’s Hope from the dinosaurs to today, lead these groups.

These tours can emphasize almost any topic your class is studying, such as community, the fur trade, transportation, natural resources, communication, etc. Let us know how we can shape your tour.

Duration: 30 minutes for kindergarten or 60 minutes for grades 1 – 12
Cost: $2 per person (includes tax). An adult must accompany every ten elementary school students. TOUR FEES ARE DUE BEFORE OR ON THE DAY OF THE TOUR. We recommended more accompanying adults/seniors for grade three and under. It is the responsibility of the teacher and accompanying adult/senior volunteers to maintain discipline throughout the visit

SCAVENGER HUNTS

We have four 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)
These indoor scavenger hunts focus on historic artifacts from around Hudson’s Hope. The picture-based scavenger hunt looks at artefacts in five exhibits and is aimed at kindergarten through grade three. This hunt takes about 20 minutes to complete. The 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 May through September as our historic buildings are closed during winter months. These scavenger hunts take students around the museum’s yard, looking at farming and mining equipment, a church, a trapper’s cabin, and a pioneer cabin. There is a question-based scavenger hunt for older children (grade four and up) and a picture-based scavenger hunt for younger children (kindergarten to grade three). These scavenger hunts take about 20 minutes to complete.
