The Great Turkey Scavenger Hunt

  • Price band: 2/4

Work up a mighty Thanksgiving appetite at the Museum at Eldridge Street, where kids become “preservation detectives” and set out on a scavenger hunt for artifacts in the galleries. Century-old clues will lead them on a journey into the past where they’ll learn a Thanksgiving tale as told by the historic synagogue. More hands-on activities include holiday crafts and turkey-shaped challah. Reservations required. Ages 4–10.
