Where's Wally? Spooky Museum Search | 24 Oct - 1st Nov 2020

This Halloween, Wally, the world’s favourite children’s book character – wearing a red-and-white striped shirt and black-rimmed specs – will be travelling the country, appearing in museums, including the Museum of Hartlepool. Families will be able to join the search for Wally at our museum as part of the Where’s Wally? Spooky Museum Search, organised by Walker Books and Kids in Museums, to celebrate the release of the new book, Where’s Wally? Spooky Spotlight Search.

Over 75 museums around the UK have signed up to run the promotion, which is perfectly timed for Halloween. The activity will run in the Museum of Hartlepool  from 24th October – 1st November 2020. 

Families will be able to visit our museum to hunt for Wally amongst their collections, as well as spell out a spooky phrase with letters hidden alongside mini Wally standees, and receive a special “I found Wally!” bookmark on completion of the search, as well as the chance to enter the Where’s Wally? and Kids in Museums grand prize draw competition to win an ArtFund Family Membership and a bundle of Where’s Wally? goodies.

Please be advised that booking is essential and you can book your free slot on The National Museum of The Royal Navy website here –  https://www.nmrn.org.uk/museum-hartlepool
