The Hunt for Clues

A device specifically dedicated to self-guided preschool classes.

When you book a self-guided tour, do not hesitate to ask for a hunt for clues once your date has been confirmed with the education team. Can be done in a short time, adapted to the children’s rhythm (about 45 minutes), this tour consists of the setting up by us of small tokens all over the museum’s permanent collections. With the help of a quiz (we have written down the answers to make it easier for you!), the kids have to find the answers to the questions and thus identify the corresponding works. For each correct answer, a token placed near the work is to be picked up. A mini-game completes each question.

There are 4 quizzes for 4 teams but you can do less depending on the number of accompanying persons who are present. Simply inform the education team at the time of your request.


This game offers a fun visit of the museum without a guide. On request and according to our availability, the museum team will position the clue-hunting tokens on the day of your visit. You must print out the quizzes and bring them with you on the day of your visit. There is no need for a pencil but a hard surface for each quiz is recommended.
We thank you after your visit to return the tokens collected at the museum reception desk.
