Join Watson Adventures on a unique scavenger hunt for Harry Potter Fans ages 10 and up at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. It's fun for wizards and muggles alike. Follow in the footsteps of young wizards on a field 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. Wizards and muggles alike can play and enjoy this hunt. The hunt is not an addition to or variation on Harry’s adventures, but instead references to the books that provide a surprising bridge to many strange and wonderful works of art. It’s a great way to discover -- or rediscover -- the museum. This hunt is designed for kids and adults to do together, but all-adult teams will be allowed to compete separately. Sat., March 30, 1 p.m. Ages 10 and up. Kids must be accompanied by an adult. Price includes museum admission: adults, $35; college students with ID, $33; ages 10-17, $22. Tickets must be purchased in advance. Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Ave., Boston. www.watsonadventures.com/public/location/boston
