Each ‘prospector ‘wrote down the answer to the clues and counted up the number of a’s and u’s in the words written down (Au is the symbol of gold, of course!). At the end of the hunt, the number of a’s and u’s gave you a grid reference on a treasure map. I got it right (in the end) and was rewarded with a gold nugget - hokey pokey covered in chocolate.
It was impressive to see the number of families who were on the hunt, and yes the adults seemed to have as much fun as the kids. Once again, how lucky are Dunedinites to have such an amazing museum which offers interactive activities for free!
