Fan reports from inside Harry Potter: the Exhibition

UPDATE: There was a problem with the link to the first report – it actually went to the second report. Both links are both now working: Report 1 | Report 2.

As we all know, the grand opening of Harry Potter: the Exhibition in Chicago is quickly approaching. MuggleNet staff member Eric will be visiting the exhibit in a couple days to provide fans with a full report, but today we have two great first looks from fans who are members of the museum and received a sneak peek.

MuggleNet reader Heather filed a lengthy walk through of the exhibit for us and describes all of the great details that have gone into this project:

Rounding the corner, a group of portraits used as part of the set on the films greets you – literally, greets you. Some sigh and smile, while others partake in whatever activity they're painted doing (my favorite was the portrait of lovers on a swing in a cemetery), and some are as silent as ones in the muggle world. The Fat Lady tries to impress you with her vocal talents as you pass through her archway into the Gryffindor Common Room.

We also have this report from MuggleNet reader Selena, who describes the exhibit as a “must” for any Harry Potter fan. She also provides details about what exactly you'll get to see.

Thanks again to both girls for the reports! For more information on the exhibit, including how to obtain tickets, click here.
