Museum Hunts

bird's the word!

Birds are everywhere in the Air Force Museum - if you know where to look!

Inspired by the Pop Up Penguins lodging at the Museum this Summer, these new Hunts will see kids searching the Museum for bird-themed clues - from feathers to footprints, and even a special penguin code.

birds of a feather

Search for eight brightly-coloured feathers hidden around the Museum and match them to the ones on your sheet. Your mission is to identify the one that can't be found!

Bird tracker

The Museum is home to quite a flock of different birds. They have left their footprints everywhere! But there is one set of prints we can't identify. Your mission is to track down all the footprints, write down the name of the bird they belong to, and reveal the name of the mystery bird!

the secret language of birds

Hidden around the Museum are eight coded word clues. Your mission is to decode each word clue using the penguin codebreaker key on your sheet, and reveal the secret sentence.
