Scavenger hunters can take photos of their finds and come back to the museum on Warren Street in Glens Falls to collect prizes in exchange.

Prizes include a coupon book with deals for local businesses, a free museum pass and a water bottle. The first 10 families to find every hidden artwork will also receive free movie tickets for Regal Entertainment at the Aviation Mall.
