The N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences will host a scavenger hunt for families later this month.

“Family Night: Science Sleuths” is 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Sept. 22, at the downtown Raleigh museum. A series of clues will lead participating teams around the museum’s seven floors of exhibit space, prompting team members to perform physical and mental challenges along the way, according to a press release. The scavenger hunt will take 90 minutes to complete.

While museum staff grades answers, Bob Alderink, the museum's coordinator of the Natural World Investigate Lab, will entertain weary hunters with a fun, fast-paced science presentation. Lemur and Binturong mascots from the Conservators Center in Burlington will also be on hand. The evening comes to a close after staff award prizes to the winning teams.

Tickets are on sale now, but space is limited. Tickets are $3 per person ($2 for Members) and are required for participants age 3 years and older.
