Wheres Wally Big Museum HuntOctober half term

Where’s Wally? The Big Museum Hunt

Dates: Saturday 19 - Sunday 27 October
Location: Covent Garden Museum - start at stamper trail #1 on the Ground Floor

Explore, discover, play as you hunt for Wally around the Museum.

Start your journey by picking up a Play Trail from the ground floor by the cloakroom. Then make your way into the Museum and weave your way among our historic buses and trains as you try to track down Wally in his iconic red and white striped jumper! There are 10 different playful activities at different locations along the way for you to find.

Some of the activities you can look forward to include role play, eye spy, playing cards and activities to test out your searching and finding skills! You’ll also be able to take part in singing and storytelling throughout the day inside some of our special vehicles, some of which are not usually open to the public to board!
