Wizard School Family Scavenger Hunt at the Museum of Fine Arts

Follow in the footsteps of young wizards on a trip to the Museum of Fine Arts, 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 flying owls, Hagrid-like giants, centaurs and unicorns like those you’d see in the Forbidden Forest, dragons that seem straight out of the Triwizard Tournament, and eerie figures as scary as any Death Eater or Dementor.

This hunt is not an addition to or variation on Harry Potter’s adventures, but instead references to the books will provide a surprising bridge to many stranger and wonderful works of art. It’s a great way to discover – or rediscover – the Museum of Fine Arts.

This scavenger hunt is recommended for ages 10 and up.

Next, follow the Salem Heritage Trail and learn more about the days of sea captains, pirates, and noted novelist Nathaniel Hawthorne. See the East India Museum Hall, the Witch House, the Salem Maritime National Historic Site, and so much more.
