Children ages 12 and under, with parents in tow, hunted for paintings and artifacts Saturday afternoon during the Brinton Museum's Things That Go Bump in the Night scavenger hunt for Halloween.

Barbara McNab, who's the museum's curator of exhibitions and museum education, said this is the fourth year for the event, which opens the museum free of charge for two hours.

McNab said the bags contain all kinds of fun stuff, including coloring sheets and lots of Mars candy, which is donated by the Mars company. She said there are also Halloween stickers and notepads.

In addition, the children and their parents could help themselves to cookies. McNab said the children received the take-home gift bags at the end of the tour.

Items to be found on the scavenger hunt included a Crow warbonnet case, a painted war shirt which has been voted one of Wyoming's Top Ten most important artifacts, a portrait of a Blackfeet Indian and a painting of a big brown bear.
