Where’s Wally? Spooky Museum Search!

Join the search for Wally with your family at The Atkinson during October half term.

We are part of the national Where’s Wally? Spooky Museum Search, organised by Kids in Museums and Walker Books, to celebrate the release of the new Where’s Wally? book, Spooky Spotlight Search.

Can you find Wally in our museum collections?… Is he hiding in Ancient Egypt with a mummy?… Or in outer space with Dan Dare: Pilot of the Future?…

Find Wally and a letter of the alphabet in 8 locations across the museum to spell out a spooky word.

Pick up an activity sheet on your way in and receive a Where’s Wally? bookmark!*

*Subject to availability

Remember – Pack your pencil case! To help keep everyone safe, we recommend bringing your own pencils.

You do not need to book.
