Harry Potter Exhibit




 
November 16, 2009 - CelticRadio.net - Harry Potter "The Exhibition" is a show not to missed when it comes to your town. Currently playing at the Boston Museum of Science from October 25th, 2009 through February 21, 2010, the admission price is a hefty $25 per person, but if you are a member of MOS (Museum of Science), you can get admission for only $5.

This amazing exhibit allows guests to get up close and personal to the artistry and craftsmanship that went into creating the iconic props and customs 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.

The tour stars with an introduction to Harry Potter and the sorting hat. Small children should immediately get a space as close as possible to the front and the English speaking actress. When she asks "who would like to be sorted", make sure your child quickly raises their hand. Three lucky children will have the chance to be sorted by the hat to find out their house! A grand introduction to the exhibit occurs shortly after the sorting when the huge double exhibit doors both open to reveal an HD standing theater with about 12 screens playing an overview of the entire Harry Potter film series. Spectacular sound effects and visuals.

Once the movie series completes the excitement continues as another set of doors opens to a night time scene with a tour guide waving a lantern and leading you on through a smoke filled train station and a full scale prop of the train getting ready to leave for Hogwarts. The next part of the walking tour consists of the many different scenes and customs of the movie. Exquisite details and thousands of props from the movie in stands, tables, bedrooms, walls and more. See Harry, Ron and Hermione's Clothing, Wands, letters and artifacts. Gaze at Harry Potter's bedroom scene or Snakes laboratory with bubbling contraptions of wizardly potions. Try your hand at the Quidditch gaming display and view all of the uniforms from the Quidditch world cup and more. Or visit the Herbology classroom and pull a mandrake out of the dirt to hear them scream! Words could never describe the details of this beautiful exhibit which will leave you with the impression of actually visiting the hallowed halls of Hogwarts and walking the set of Harry Potter.

A magical surprise in the middle of the exhibit is Hagrid's Hut containing his full dress (he must be a giant of a man), sit in his chair and watch the dragon egg try and hatch. The hut marks the transition to the dark forbidden forest and the spider, centurions and more. The darkness turns into the evil characters of Harry Potter including Malfour, death eaters, dementors, witches and the one we must not mention. So fine is the detail that looking at the sky within the exhibit reveals a moving ghostly cloud image. The tour takes a walk down a long hallway of newspaper articles warning of impending doom and of the news that serious black is on the loose!

The exhibit takes a lighter turn into the hall of pictures that actually talk and finally the doors of the great hall lead you into the grand finale with candles floating above and the beautiful Dumbledore's customs and more. A towering cathedral stain glass framed in arcing stone backdrops the end of the exhibit and leaves you wondering how many people where involved in moving and constructing all of the exhibits in this marvelous tour into the world of Harry Potter! The final room we will leave as a surprise, but it is a fitting end to this wonderful exhibit. Mingle in the gift store at the end of the exhibit and browse through the hundreds of items for sale.

This is a once in a lifetime exhibit that you must see to believe. What is truly amazing is the amount of work, time and craftsmanship that went into compiling this tremendous outpouring of Harry Potter for the fans to enjoy and experience for themselves the magic of Harry Potter. Don't miss out on the Harry Potter Exhibit before it returns to England forever!
