Watson Adventures’ Wizard School Scavenger Hunt for Harry Potter Fans

Sat Dec 7, 2019 - Sat Feb 8, 2020- see all dates
10 and up
Adults $36.50; Students $30.50; Children (10-17) $24.50

Follow in the footsteps of young wizards on a field trip to the Philadelphia Museum of Art in search of art that echoes characters, places, and enchanted objects in the famed Harry Potter books and movies.

Be prepared to track down a Snape-like potions master, flying owls and dragons, 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 provide a surprising bridge to many strange and wonderful works of art. It’s a great way to discover—or rediscover—the museum. This hunt is designed for kids and adults to do together, but all-adult teams are allowed to compete separately. Kids must be accompanied by adults.

The admission price includes museum admission for guests 13 and up. Tickets must be purchased in advance by visiting www.watsonadventures.com.
