If you are looking for something fun to add to your summer list of things to do, there is another week to take part in a Niagara-on-the-Lake Museum scavenger hunt.
The museum is holding a Summer Games Scavenger Hunt, which continues until Aug. 31 — residents still have time to complete it.
You will need to download the GooseChase App on your mobile phone, enter the museum game code BLJW91, and you are set to put your sleuthing skills into motion and hopefully win some prizes.
By participating you will explore new locations, learn some fun history facts, and test your own local knowledge. As this is a Canada Summer Games Scavenger Hunt, it includes some local sports history.
It is a free app, and the game can be completed without a car, on your own time, walking through the Old Town. Some missions ask you to send in selfies at
specific locations, while others ask for answers to questions. Just don’t delete the app until the winners are announced at the end of the month.
If the sleuthing bug bites you, you can wander further afield for more activities. This scavenger hunt is being hosted by the Museums of Niagara Association. You will need a car to get to the other museums in Niagara Falls, Port Colborne and Lincoln. All games can be found on the same app.
Amy Klassen, director of finance and marketing, says, “This is an easy and fun way for you to get out and about, and to get to know your community.”
