Wizard School Scavenger Hunt at the Getty Museum
This magical tour of the Getty Center will send you in search of art that echoes the enchanted world of Harry Potter.
Keep your wand handy as you hunt for fierce dragons and trusty owls, unicorns and centaurs that look like they emerged from the Forbidden Forest, strange mermaids and sharks that seem straight out of the Triwizard Tournament, cloaked and masked figures that would send shivers through Death Eaters and Dementors, and characters that will remind you of Hagrid and Snape.
The hunt is not an addition to, or variation on, Harry’s adventures. Instead, references to the books and movies provide a surprising bridge to many fascinating and unexpected works of art.
And don’t worry, if not everyone in your group has seen the movies or read the books: each team gets a Cheat Sheet for anyone who might not know, say, the name of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named.
Advance purchase of tickets required and can be done on their website. The hunt is approximately two hours long and recommended for ages 10 and up. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
