South Street Seaport Museum Announces Free Spring Flower Scavenger Hunt

March 30 @ 11:00 AM - 4:30 PM


Spring is a-bloom at the Seaport Museum! Join us in welcoming the season of awakening and sunshine with a fun-filled scavenger hunt aboard the 1885 tall ship Wavertree.

To mark the season and commemorate Wavertree’s intercontinental crossings, this scavenger hunt challenges people of all ages to find illustrations of flowers hidden throughout the decks of this historical three-masted cargo ship. The flowers we’ll be searching for are illustrations of blossoms from countries Wavertree visited in her impressive 24-year sailing career.

Those who find all the flowers in the hunt will even receive a small prize! The event is free, but please let us know that you’re coming by registering.
