“Harry Potter: The Exhibition” Slated for Second European Tour Stop
As the tour for Harry Potter: The Exhibition continues its journey around the world, the next stop has been announced. After a successful journey in Sweden, the exhibition will be making its way to Cologne, Germany, on October 3, 2014. The exhibition will open its doors at the science and adventure museum ODYSSEUM in Cologne-Kalk.
