Harry Potter Hunt through the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Join us on an ART SMART-created magical hunt-style private tour that echoes the characters, settings, and enchanted objects from the Harry Potter stories and the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child play.

Along the way we’ll

  • track down animals similar to those in the Forbidden Forest
  • spot creatures that could compete in the Triwizard Tournament
  • hunt for Hedwig-like owls and Norbert-like dragons
  • come across knights like those in the Chessboard Chamber
  • encounter pieces that could be part of the Floo Network
  • get a wand to point out what we find

How do you get a child’s attention in a Greek art gallery? Well, you can start by talking about such creatures as griffins, basilisks, or the three-headed protective dog named Cerberus. Make the connection with Fluffy, a guard dog at Hogwarts, and other Harry Potter characters. And faster than you can say “Sorcerer’s Stone,” voilà– the children are spellbound.

Such moments are typical during an ART SMART Adventure, where museum tours are anything but typical. We may use pop culture to help cast our spell, but that’s just a small part of the magic in these private tours through New York’s museums. Our family tours bring art to children and teens in fresh, creative ways. They spark intriguing and original questions and conversations, as children make the connections between age-old art and what’s happening in their own lives. This tour, like all of our family adventures, are designed for parents and kids to explore together.
