The Secrets of the de Young Museum Scavenger Hunt

Uncover the shocking secrets of masterpieces…

…on a whirlwind tour of the best of the de Young Museum, a stunning jewel in San Francisco’s crown. You’ll search for answers to quirky, funny questions about intriguing objects you’re challenged to find in the collections of American paintings and sculptures, African art, art of the Americas, and more.

Your team might find…

  • An atomic owl
  • A snaggle-fingered pianist
  • A Kongo man who should sue his acupuncturist
  • A cocoa coffin
  • A headhunter’s home furnishings
  • A barbarous barber
  • A clue hidden in the spectacular panorama viewed from the museum’s tower

Those are just a few of the highlights on this revealing romp through the eclectic galleries. But you don’t need to know anything about art to succeed: you just need excellent teamwork and comfortable shoes.

An International Edition is available for groups that include participants whose first language is not English.

You can also help make art accessible, surprising, and new to hunters of every age and stripe with the Kids Edition of this scavenger hunt, geared toward ages 7 and up. Adults and children work together to uncover the amazing aspects of art, making it the perfect choice for school field trips, camp outings, birthday parties, and more.
