Buddy the Elf Digital Adventure

/ Scavenger Hunt

Note: This is a temporary scavenger hunt and will only be available through January 5, 2021.

Buddy the Elf!

Elf​ is arguably one of the funniest holiday movie classics of our time. And we were lucky enough for Buddy to visit the BMA!

Explore the BMA’s sm​art​guide like you are Buddy the Elf leaving the North Pole for the very first time! 

To begin, follow the seven levels of the Candy Cane Forest, through the sea of swirly-twirly gumdrops, walk through the Lincoln Tunnel, then go to the sm​art​guide index to find your first stop.

Have fun seeing what silly adventures Buddy has with the artworks at the BMA!
