Immerse yourself in the hidden secrets and stories of New York City's iconic Central Park on this summer afternoon scavenger hunt.

For more than 160 years, Central Park has offered millions of New Yorkers 843 acres of rolling hills, hidden nooks, and sprawling lawns — right in the middle of Manhattan. But beyond Belvedere Castle and Sheep's Meadow, how well do you really know your Park? Explore the landmark's remarkable history on this scavenger hunt using the Urban Archive smartphone app. In teams or by yourself, race to match historic images of the Park to their present-day locations. Afterwards, meet back at the Museum for light refreshments and an awards ceremony.
