“Harry Potter” broom to be exhibited at Leicester museum

A broom used during the filming of Harry Potter will be exhibited at the New Walk Museum and Art Gallery beginning May 4 as a part of the “Magic Worlds” exhibit. There is no word yet on whether the broom displayed will be Harry’s Nimbus 2000 or his Firebolt, but the broom is being touted as the exhibit’s main attraction.

“Magic Worlds” will also feature the One Ring from The Lord of the Rings, as well as displays based on Snow White, Alice in Wonderland, The Chronicles of Narnia, and Cinderella, among others.

“Magic Worlds” will run from May 2-September 29. You can read more about the exhibition here and check out the New Walk Museum’s page about the exhibit here.

I've been making magic at MuggleNet since 2012, when I first joined the staff as a News intern. I've never wavered from the declaration in my childhood journal, circa October 2000: "I LOVE Harry Potter! If I clean my room, my mom says she'll make me a dinner a wizard would love!" Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
