The Magical Creatures Scavenger Hunt

The wizarding world is full of fantastic beasts…

…and it’s up to you to find them. Inspired by the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films and books, this adventure unveils the extraordinary—and the seemingly ordinary—at the American Museum of Natural History.

A not-so-renowned wizard is writing a field guide to rival a certain wizard’s now-legendary textbook on magical creatures, and you’ll be given a sneak preview. Find beasts that could only be things of magic, from the deepest ocean to the highest mountain.

On your quest, your team might…

  • Learn how zebras got their stripes
  • Fawn over a tiny, cuddly cousin to dragons
  • Find the creature that muggles call the dodo bird (Silly muggles!)
  • Swim with tubular creatures
  • Meet the animal inspirations for Howarts’ Houses

Along the way, complete a unique bonus challenge by identifying the fanciful features of a beast the wizard swears he encountered in the wild—and narrowly escaped with his life!

For ages 10 and up. Each team must be accompanied by at least one adult.

If you’re looking for a hunt for kids (or adults) that’s more about the world of Harry Potter, consider the popular Wizard School Scavenger Hunt 2: The Museum of Magical History.
