Where's Wally? Spooky Museum Search!


Join the search for Wally with your family at Colchester Castle this half term. We’re 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 collections? Pick up an activity sheet and get a spooky bookmark if you do!

Some friendly ghosts will be on hand to help you find Wally, as well as special Halloween themed QR codes we’ve hidden around the museum. Find and scan them to learn more about some of the real ghost stories linked to the Castle’s long and historic past! 

This event is included as part of Castle admission.
