Art Attack Family Scavenger Hunt @ PMA

Kids and adults work together to discover the secrets of all kinds of art, starring knights in armor, munching monks, puzzling jugs, dragons with bad breath, surprising sea monsters, twinkling tortoises and goofy glasses. You’ll think you’ve traveled to foreign lands, in galleries that re-create an Indian temple, a Chinese palace, a Japanese village, a medieval courtyard and fancy mansions at The Philadelphia Museum of Art (26th St & Benjamin Franklin Pkwy)! No knowledge of art or the museum is required for this event appropriate for ages 7 and up at 10:30am. Kids must be accompanied by an adult and vice versa. For more information visit
