Join Watson Adventures on a unique scavenger hunt for Harry Potter fans ages 10 and older!
Follow in the footsteps of young wizards on a field trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in search of works that echo 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; flying owls and dragons; Hagrid-like giants; centaurs and unicorns like those you?d see in the Forbidden Forest; strange mermaids and sharks much like the ones in the Triwizard Tournament; fierce knights in armor; and cloaked and masked figures as scary as any Death Eater or Dementor. Wizards and muggles alike can play and enjoy this hunt. 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. This hunt is designed for kids and adults to do together, but all-adult teams will be allowed to compete separately. Kids must be accompanied by adults. Prices include museum admission. Advance purchase is required via the website. Questions? Call 877-9GO-HUNT.
Address: 1000 Fifth Ave. Upper East Side, NY 10028
