Ghost Hunt

Eleven mischievous ghosts have plunged the exhibition History and Memory into darkness. Equipped with a flashlight and the game Ghost Hunt, children will help Museum guides catch the transparent little monsters hidden in the exhibition. Those who have spotted all the characters will receive a sweet treat at the end of the hunt.
