This Thursday, May 28, local teens can discover the city’s great museum scene by way of a scavenger hunt as STAMP (Students at Museums in Philly) on the Parkway hits the city.
From 3 to 7 p.m., teens can search for items throughout five museums — the Academy of Natural Sciences, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Eastern State Penitentiary, The Franklin Institute and the Barnes Foundation.
The scavenger hunt closes out at the Barnes Foundation where Chill Moody, a West Philly-based rapper who has performed at the Roots Picnic, Wawa Welcome America and more, will perform a 20-minute set for guests at 6 p.m. After Chill Moody, DJ Ricoche will provide the tunes. Giveaways, food and dancing will round out the fun at the Barnes.
Registration is not required, but those who register will be entered to win special prizes. Click here to register.
STAMP on the Parkway serves as the kick off for STAMP Audio Tours. STAMP Audio Tours are recorded tours by members of the STAMP Teen Council that include little-known facts about participating museums.
