In this unique scavenger hunt, Harry Potter fans ages 10 and older can follow in the footsteps of young wizards 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.
Note: 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 in the museum.
Kids must be accompanied by adults. Advance purchase is required at watsonadventures.com. Questions? Call 877-9GO-HUNT, but please do not contact the museum directly.
