We run the i-spy challenge every year from April to September, with a different trail theme each year.

Surrey Super Women i-spy challenge
Who are the great women who have helped shape Surrey’s history?
From 1st April to 1st September 2017, 16 of Surrey’s museums and galleries are in the i-spy challenge with something linked to one of Surrey's Super Women hidden among their displays and exhibitions.
All you have to do is visit as many of the 16 museums as you can to find objects in the trail. The family who has spotted the most objects will win a prize!
HOW TO TAKE PART in 5 EASY STEPS…
1. Visit a museum on the i-spy page and pick up your leaflet from reception.
2. Spot the object from the photograph somewhere in the museum displays.
3. Jot down where it was hidden in the displays, or an interesting fact about it.
4. Collect a Surrey Museums Month sticker from a member of museum staff.
5. Move on to the next museum or gallery!
Error: Please note that number 17 on the i-spy page should say 19 - the object is at Guildford MUSEUM, not Guildford Cathedral.
Send in your stickered leaflet or a photocopy of your i-spy page BY 8th SEPTEMBER 2017 to:
H. Thomas, Museums Officer, Surrey History Centre, 130 Goldsworth Road, Woking GU21 6ND.
