We’ve polished our brooms, safely holstered our wands, and casted an Undetectable Extension Charm on our trunks.
Why, you ask?
Because Museum Hack is bringing our Harry Potter-inspired mini tours to the Met!
Starting February 3, we’ll be running 1.5-hour Harry Potter-inspired tours of the Met, perfect for witches, wizards, Squibs, and Muggles alike. We can’t guarantee that the portraits will talk, but you’d certainly need a Quick Quotes Quills to keep up with the awesome magical knowledge our Potter-loving guides will drop on the tour.
During the tour, we’ll delve deep into the secret history of the Met, a building with just as many mysteries and wonders as Hogwarts itself. We’ll also point out representatives from each Hogwarts House throughout the museum and search together for wands, robes, and pets, all to prepare for one of the most important events in every witch or wizard’s life: the Sorting!
And don’t think this tour ends that easily. Before the end, we’ll have you complete your O.W.Ls with a series of games and challenges to test your mettle, the likes of which haven’t been seen since the fourth Triwizard Tournament.
We think that this tour is pretty amazing, but don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at these rave reviews from our San Francisco Harry Potter-inspired mini tour at the de Young:
“My father will hear about this!” – Draco Malfoy
“Worth waiting 12 years in Azkaban!” – Sirius Black
“I took the Harry Potter themed Museum Hack at the De Young and had the most magical time… I couldn’t choose a favorite part because I loved every moment so much…” – Kaila C.
So, Potterheads, it’s time to dust off that Portkey, put on those robes, and Accio yourself some tickets to the Met. We have a feeling they’ll be flying off the shelves faster than Cauldron Cakes on the Hogwarts Express.
