Harry Potter: The Exhibition

The first and only stop of Harry Potter: The Exhibition in Australia will be at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney. This is the same exhibit that has made stops in both Seattle and New York City.

The exhibit opens on November 19, 2011 and runs through April 1, 2012. Included in the exhibit will be the Gryffindor common room, Hagrid’s hut, and the Great Hall. As an upgrade to past exhibits, this exhibit will feature new props and costumes from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part 1 and part 2.

The exhibit starts with a witch welcoming you to Hogwarts and one tour member will be sorted into a Hogwarts House by the Sorting Hat. The exhibit then leads you to a room to watch clips of Harry Potter, setting the stage for the rest of your tour. The Hogwarts express gives a whistle and the doors open, releasing you into the Gryffindor Common Room. From there, you can travel the exhibit at your leisure. You’ll have the chance to enter the Quidditch area, toss a Quaffle, and pull a Mandrake.

There are props from the movies, including the TriWizard Cup, Harry’s wand and glasses, the Marauder’s Map and a Hogwarts acceptance letter. You’ll also get to see the costumes of various cast members and all their intricate details. Be sure to check the stitching on Dumbledore’s robes to see just how detail-oriented the designers were. There are several sets rebuilt for this exhibit including the boys’ dormitory and Hagrid’s hut. You’ll also find creatures here, including Kreacher himself. There are also spiders from the second movie, dementors from the third movie and Yule ball costumes from the fourth movie.
