Have you seen the bust of the Voldemort look-alike at the Met? Discover connections like this in an interactive ‘wizarding’ tour in the magical Metropolitan Museum inspired by the Harry Potter books. See spaces, places and objects similar to those in the books, from part of an actual castle to depictions of mythical creatures like griffins and dragons.
Includes scavenger hunts, creative activities, fun items to take home and lots of fascinating information. Explore lesser-known spaces of the vast museum (you walk quite a bit) as you learn about Hogwarts and history. We were accompanied by an 11-year-old super fan (she’s read the series 8 times) who described the tour as ‘down-right awesome’ and my 7-year-old (who’s only read the first book) had just as much fun. Appropriate interactive wizarding gear is encouraged. Advance reservations required.
