Wenda calls Waldo and Woof for help when Wizard Whitebeard gets stuck in the movie picture at Wenda's Theater. After helping the Wizard, Waldo learns of a problem in the Land of the Living Museum. Waldo invites Wenda along on their adventure. Waldo, Woof, and Wenda, with Odlaw trailing behind, head off to the museum. There they meet Okey Dokey, the museum's curator, who informs them of the problem – the art is being stolen. Soon they are introduced to resident artist Norwood Oou.

The three travelers visit the ancient Rome section of the museum in search of clues and find themselves in the middle of a gladiator match. After a few close calls, Waldo learns that Emperor Nero's harp was stolen. They continue to follow the clues to the Egyptian exhibit. They learn that Cleopatra's golden pussy cat was stolen as well. There are a few more close calls as they explore the pyramids – meanwhile Wenda takes a lot more pictures. With all the clues and Wenda's pictures, Waldo solves the crime and saves the day.

This episode was based off the illustration "Museum" from Where's Waldo, the illustration "Fun and Games in Acient Rome" from Find Waldo Now, the illustration "The Riddle of the Pyramids" from Find Waldo Now.

Okey Dokey: I haven't seen you in here before!
Waldo: That's because I haven't been here before.
Okey Dokey: Oh yeah. Well, in that case, where were you on the night of June 18, 1954?
Waldo: I wasn't born yet.
Okey Dokey: Actually, that's a good answer.
