Embark on an Amazing Wizarding Adventure...
…where you’ll search for exhibits that echo characters, places, and enchanted objects in the books and movies of the Harry Potter universe. Be prepared to track otherworldly creatures through a forbidden (rain) forest, dance with Hagrid-like giants, encounter a cute cousin of dragons, stalk hunters scarier than any Auror, and more.
Both wizards and muggles can play and enjoy this game. The hunt is not an addition to or variation on Harry’s adventures. Instead, references to the books will provide a surprising bridge to many strange and wonderful museum exhibits. It’s a great way to discover—or rediscover—the museum.
This hunt was inspired by our popular Wizard School Scavenger Hunt at the Met, but it’s not a sequel. You don’t have to complete one to play the other.
For ages 10 and up. 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 an adult.
