A Look Inside ‘Harry Potter: The Exhibition’

Harry Potter fans can rejoice, as Harry Potter: The Exhibition is on tour!

I was so excited about this. I can’t tell you how excited I was, in fact. This was mostly because when the tour stopped at the Discovery Times Center in New York City it was a previously unscheduled stop.

You must, must, must go see this in person. It’s amazing!

New York also served as the tour’s final stop in the United States before it headed abroad.

So when one of my best friends from home and her 8-year old came to visit. We made a family outing to see Harry Potter: The Exhibition.

As a fan of the books and the films, it’s truly an amazing experience.

One issue I did have with it however, was that it was too short, and too many things were compacted into small spaces. It was overwhelming and easy to miss things.

I don’t know if that’s because I saw it at the Discovery Times Center in New York, and everything in The City is in a small space, or that’s the real layout.

In partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Global Experience Specialists, Inc. (GES) created a 14,00-square-foot experiential exhibition that allowed visitors to visit the dramatic, timeless and incredible displays inspired by the Hogwarts film sets.

In this amazing exhibition, guests will get an up close and personal look at the artistry and craftsmanship that went into creating the iconic props and costumes that appeared throughout the Harry Potter films. These authentic artifacts will be displayed in elaborate settings inspired by locations from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry including the Gryffindor common room, Hagrid’s hut and the Great Hall.

“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”

“It’s a strange thing, but when you are dreading something, and would give anything to slow down time, it has a disobliging habit of speeding up. “

~ J.K. Rowling, “The Hungarian Horntail,” Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“If you want to know what a man’s like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals. “

~ J.K. Rowling, “Padfoot Returns,” Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it.”

~ J.K. Rowling, “The Parting of the Ways,” Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.”

~ J.K. Rowling, “The Beginning,” Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

“It is the unknown we fear when we look upon death and darkness, nothing more.”

~ J.K. Rowling, “The Cave,” Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

“It is a curious thing, Harry, but perhaps those who are best suited to power are those who have never sought it.  Those who, like you, have leadership thrust upon them, and take up the mantle because they must, and find to their own surprise that they wear it well.”

~ J.K. Rowling, “King’s Cross,” Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
