Harry Potter: The Exhibition heads to the Big Apple
Harry Potter fans will be thrilled to learn that Harry Potter: The Exhibition has been extended and will make one final North American stop in New York City. Starting April 5, fans can dive into the magical world of Harry Potter and take a peek at the props, costumes, artifacts and all things Hogwarts on display at Discovery Times Square.
Step inside the enchanting settings that were inspired by the Harry Potter films — the Great Hall, Hagrid’s hut and the Gryffindor common room. And feast your eyes on Harry’s wand and eyeglasses, the Marauder’s Map, Hermione’s Time-Turner, the Golden Snitch, the Triwizard Cup, costumes from the Yule Ball and Gryffindor school uniforms.
Fans can even check out artifacts from the Dark Arts if they dare like Voldemort’s robes and wands, plus Death Eaters’ masks and robes.
Want to see some of J.K. Rowling’s mystical beasts? Come face to face with Buckbeak, Dobby, Fawkes and a Dementor! Harry Potter fans can even try their hand at Quidditch and toss a Quaffle through a hoop. Or see if you have the herbology skills of Neville Longbottom when you pull out a screeching mandrake.
“From the moment they step inside, visitors to Harry Potter: The Exhibition are immersed in the fantastic world brought to life in the blockbuster films,” said Brad Globe, president, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “New York is the perfect location for our last stop in North America. We think fans will be thrilled to have one more opportunity to experience firsthand the magic of this incredible exhibition.”
Harry Potter: The Exhibition will run through September 5 before heading off on an international tour. For more info and tickets, check out the Discovery Times Square site.
