Morven Museum 4th of July Scavenger Hunt

Every year Morven hosts the free Fourth of July Jubilee, but this year’s celebration will be a bit different. While the gardens will remain open for socially distant visits and the museum will be open during its operation hours, we will not be gathering as we have in the past. Instead, there will be a 10-day long scavenger hunt with a special prize at the end. Great idea for kids and families looking for something new, but safe this year. Full details in the link above.
