Where IS Waldo? Some folks say he is hiding at the Emmaus Historical Society...can it be? That's a pretty good place to hide. He can spend most of the week hanging around the great Museum learning about the very cool Emmaus History. BUT the Museum at 218 Main Street in Emmaus Borough is open on Saturdays from 10 to 4 for everyone to come in to learn about Emmaus. Grab your family's passport at Let's Play Books and come to the Museum on Saturday to find Waldo and something really cool about Emmaus!
