This Father's Day, 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 will provide a surprising bridge to many strange and wonderful works of art. Kids must be accompanied by an adult, but all-adult teams can compete separately. Price includes museum admission for ages 13 and up. Advance purchase is required.
Congratulations: You've been poisoned! That's the bad news at the start of this scavenger hunt at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. The good news is that the evil genius who did this is challenging you to solve a series of puzzles to come up with the combination to a box that contains the antidote. You'll follow the villain's diabolical trail of clues that leads you to explore the museum, searching for telltale works of art. You and your team will have to tackle sneaky puzzles, answer tricky questions and ultimately crack the code to unlock the box. Does your team have what it takes to unlock the box and escape? Your life may depend on it. Participants use their own smartphones to play. Advance ticket purchase required.
