Mission 49:
Journey to Alaska's Past

It’s a phone app game where you have to move through the museum to play, either in real life, or virtually on your phone. As you answer questions correctly, you’ll get clues about what to explore next, and an in-app QR code scanner will help you unlock the hidden challenges. As you play this fun Agents of Discovery scavenger hunt, you’ll learn more about the Tlingit People – upon whose traditional lands the Museum stands – and other Alaska Native cultural groups and their histories. Enjoy your time here, Agent, and always be a good steward of our shared cultural resources!
