It’s time for the annual Halloween Treasure Hunt at the British Museum

It’s That Time Again!

Between 28th and 31st October 2017 Treasure Hunts In London will be running their annual Trick or Treat Halloween Treasure Hunts around the British Museum. This adventure includes the tricky treasure hunt, based on the specially written Halloween story,   followed by a calming cream tea treat.


Begin by meeting the Witches and reading the Halloween story. Trickier than it seems as some of the words are missing. Can you fill in the blanks?

Solve the clues and you will discover they all relate to objects that can be found within the British Museum.  

Now it’s time to set off exploring. Will you be able to find the objects? They can all be discovered within the collections treasures.

Think you’ve found the right cauldron? You’ll have to unravel the crypt-ic clues and answer the question about it to check. Tricky? A little, but all the solutions can be found by searching the cabinets and reading the descriptions.

The British museum is vast, but the witches will give you a list of rooms to search so you can find your way around. And if you need a little more help, they will be there to assist you, offering hints and advice.

After you’ve finished exploring the museum and solving the tricks, it’s time for the treats. Head to an elegant nearby venue for a delicious cream tea treat and prize giving.
