Add to Calendar 23-02-2013 23-02-2013 15 Watson Adventures' Wizard School Scavenger Hunt Follow in the footsteps of young wizards on a field trip to the museum in search of art that echoes characters, places, and enchanted objects in the famed Harry Potter books and movies. Keep your trusty wand handy as you track down a powerful sorceress, a Snape-like potions master, Hagrid-like giants, and cloaked and masked figures as scary as any Death Eater or Dementor. The hunt is not an addition to or variation on Harry's adventures, but instead references to the books will provide a surprising bridge to many strange and wonderful works of art. It's a great way to discover, or rediscover, the Met. Kids must be accompanied by adults. Advance purchase is required. Price includes museum admission. Questions? Call 877-9GO-HUNT, but do not contact the museum directly. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=127239 Metropolitan Museum of Art true DD/MM/YYYY

Venue Description: The Metropolitan Museum of Art accommodates some of the greatest cultural treasures in the world, representing art from around the world and every time period from the Stone Age to the present. The museum houses the finest American art in the world, as well as an impressive collection of European, Greco-Roman, and Ancient Egyptian art. The Egyptian Art gallery includes a whole temple that was shipped to America as a gift.

The Cloisters A branch of the The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Cloisters are devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. The building itself is built with actual chapels, cloisters and other pieces of Gothic and Romanesque architecture. Inside, one can see sculpture, tapestries, magnificent stained-glass windows, and more. The most renowned treasures include the Book of Hours by Jeanne d'Evreux, the Bury St. Edmonds cross, the Chalice of Antioch, and the Unicorn Tapestries. The Cloisters are situated on the beautiful rolling grounds of Fort Tryon Park, which has magnificent views of the Palisades.
