Ready. Set. GO!!!! the MAH for Race Through Time, a thrilling biking (or walking) scavenger hunt through Santa Cruz history. Whiz through our past while biking or walking down sunny streets with friends and competitors.

Race Through Time is back and better this year with a biking and walking component, daring new clues, awesome prizes, and surprise challenges along the way. Providing a new way to learn old stories, the rules for Race Through Time are simple:

Participating racers will form teams of 2 to 5, working to solve a packet of 20 clues that reveal places in Santa Cruz that hold historical significance. Upon solving each clue and finding each corresponding location, racers will earn points towards their grand total of points - which can earn them a bundle of worthy prizes, including a MAH membership.

But that’s not all. Extra points will be awarded to the best-dressed team, and teams who participate in surprise-challenges held at various locations. When the clock strikes 8, all racers must be back at the Museum, where we’ll have a cash bar for a nice refreshing beer and some healthy snacks.

So no need to bring your heavy textbook - the history here lies beneath your spinning bike wheels, sprinting feet, and the story paved streets of your own hometown.

Don’t miss Kid Happy Hour with art activities just for kids from 4:00-5:00PM in the classroom.
