Find Wally in our Spooky Museum Search

Where's Wally? Spooky Museum Search!

Where’s Wally? Find Wally in Epping Forest District Museum as part of the Spooky Museum Search!

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 Epping Forest District Museum in Waltham Abbey.

Join the search for Wally

Families will be able to join the search for Wally at Epping Forest District Museum as part of the Where’s Wally? Spooky Museum Search. It is 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, perfectly timed for Halloween.

The activity will run from 9 October to 1 November 2020 and will be tailored within each museum to comply with their social distancing measures. Additional online activities will be available for those families choosing not to visit museums in person.

Competition to win goodies

Families will be able to visit their local participating 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.

They will also get 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.

Walker will provide participating museums with an array of supporting print and digital materials including mini standees, activity sheets, posters, bookmarks, pin badges for staff and social media assets.

Fun and safe activity

Alison Bowyer, Executive Director of Kids in Museums said:

We’re thrilled to be working with Walker Books again this year. The last few months have been a challenging time for the heritage sector so we are pleased to support even more museums to hold a fun and safe activity this October.

We hope to encourage families back into heritage sites and help them enjoy all the rich experiences on offer.
