Exciting news for Wizarding World fans! Tickets for Harry Potter: The Exhibition in Valencia are now on sale at www.harrypotterexhibition.es. Due to popular demand, the exhibition is returning to Spain this spring, offering fans another chance to see some of the iconic sets and props from the Harry Potter films. The exhibition will be hosted in the Museu de Les Ciènces at the stunning Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències complex in Valencia, for a limited time, opening April 13.
In 2017, Harry Potter: The Exhibition opened in Madrid, welcoming more than 460,000 guests during its four-month run. After the great success of the exhibition in Madrid, Valencia will be the second Spanish city within the exhibition’s European tour and the only stop in the country in 2019.
In partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, GES Events created the 1,500-square-meter experiential exhibition, where visitors can enjoy dramatic displays inspired by the Hogwarts™ film sets and see the amazing craftsmanship behind authentic costumes, props and creatures from the films. Sold Out and Encore are partnering with GES to present the exhibition in Valencia.
Since its highly successful premiere at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago in 2009, the exhibition has been presented in a variety of major cultural and entertainment institutions and museums in cities around the world including Boston, Toronto, Seattle, New York, Sydney, Singapore, Tokyo, Edmonton, Sweden, Cologne, Paris, Shanghai, Brussels, Madrid, Amsterdam, Milan and Berlin welcoming more than 5 million visitors.
“We are pleased to continue to be part of the European tour of Harry Potter: The Exhibition by bringing it to Valencia. After seeing how happy the fans were in Madrid, we knew we had to bring it back to Spain,” says Pascal Bernardin of Encore.
“We are thrilled to bring the exhibition back to Spain. We are sure of the magnificent reception in Valencia,” added Rafael Giménez of Sold Out.
“We are excited that the twentieth tour stop of Harry Potter: The Exhibition will be in the beautiful city of Valencia,” said Robin Stapley, Vice President Design and Creative, GES Events. “The exhibition was a great success in Madrid and we hope fans new and old will have a chance to visit this exhibition and relive their favorite moments from the films.”
From the moment guests enter Harry Potter: The Exhibition they are immediately drawn into the world of Harry Potter. Guests are greeted by an exhibit host who sorts several lucky fans into one of the Hogwarts™ houses and then leads them into the exhibition where their journey to favorite scenes from the Harry Potter films begins. The exhibition features settings from the films’ most popular locations—including the Gryffindor™ common room and dormitory; classrooms like Potions and Herbology; and the Forbidden Forest—which are filled with thousands of authentic props, costumes, and creatures used in the filming of the iconic series.
In addition to the beautiful environments and displays, there are several interactive elements. Guests can enter the Quidditch™ area and toss a Quaffle ball, pull their own Mandrake in the Herbology classroom vignette, and even tour a re-creation of Hagrid’s hut and sit in his giant-sized armchair.
The exhibition in Valencia will be open from April 13. Timed-entry tickets are required, and the last entry will be one hour and a half before the closing of the exhibition. Tickets to the exhibition are on sale at www.harrypotterexhibition.es. Please check the website for opening dates and hours.
An exclusive audio tour is also available, providing behind-the-scenes insight into the making of the Harry Potter films, with commentary from the producers, prop designers, costume designers and creature designers.
