Join Watson Adventures on a unique scavenger hunt for Harry Potter fans ages 10 & up!
Follow in the footsteps of young wizards on a field trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art 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 via http://www.watsonadventures.com. Price includes museum admission. Questions? Call 877-9GO-HUNT.
Venue Description: Sun.-Thurs., 10am-5:30pm; Fri.-Sat., 10am-9pm. Recommended admission: $25.
