REMEMBER: all visitors to the Roman Baths must book in advance at

This Halloween, children’s book character Wally – wearing a red-and-white striped shirt and black-rimmed specs – will be travelling the country, appearing in museums including the Roman Baths.  

Families will be able to join the search for Wally at the Roman Baths as part of the Where’s Wally? Spooky Museum Search, 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, which is perfectly timed for Halloween and October half-term. The activity will run in participating museums from 9 October to 1 November 2020 and will be tailored within each museum to comply with their physical distancing measures. Additional online activities will also be available.

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. There will also be a 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.
