Scavenger Hunt

Download the app and start hunting!

Scattered throughout the Maine Mineral & Gem Museum are special “keys” hidden around corners or right under your nose. Tap a key with your phone to unlock secret characters and add items to your inventory. The map will guide your quest and help you find your way if you miss a key. Did you get them all? Head to the gift shop for a reward!

Quarry Quest is a cross-platform scavenger hunt mobile app that uses NFC-enabled tags to encourage exploration and connection between digital and physical content. The app helps bridge the gap between important people and stories from Maine’s mining history and the items relevant to those stories, such as a jeweler and a necklace.
