“Harry Potter: The Exhibition” Heading to Milan, Italy!

This past weekend at A Celebration of Harry Potter, James and Oliver Phelps made the announcement that the next tour stop for Harry Potter: The Exhibition will be Milan, Italy. Milan’s deputy mayor even attended the event to represent the city!

The Exhibition, which allows fans to get up close and personal with props, costumes, and creatures from the Harry Potter films, will be open at Fabbrica del Vapore – a former steam train factory converted into an art museum – starting on May 12, 2018, for a limited run. There is no ending date yet, but based on the length of previous tour stops, it will likely stay open for several months.



This will be the 18th tour stop for the Exhibition, which has traveled across four continents over the last several years, attracting over four million visitors. The most recent stops have been Brussels, Belgium; Utrecht, the Netherlands; and the current stop in Madrid, Spain.

Tickets go on sale Saturday, February 10 at harrypotterexhibition.it, but an exclusive presale is happening on the Radio 101 website from February 3 to 9. For more information on ticket prices and hours, see the press release below.

We already know that Harry Potter: The Exhibition will be continuing its world tour through at least spring 2020. Where would you like to see it stop next?

Press Release



Exhibition Opening at Fabbrica del Vapore May 12th, 2018

Tickets available beginning Saturday, February 10 at harrypotterexhibition.it

Exciting news for all Harry Potter™ fans! This summer, Harry Potter fans in Italy will finally have the opportunity to get an up[-]close look at thousands of props, costumes and creatures from the Harry Potter films when Harry Potter: The Exhibition comes to Fabbrica del Vapore. Since its world premiere in Chicago, the exhibition has received more than 4 million visitors and has included stops in Boston, Toronto, Seattle, New York, Sydney, Singapore, Tokyo, Paris, Shanghai, Brussels and Madrid.

James and Oliver Phelps, who played Fred and George Weasley in the Harry Potter films, announced Milan as the exhibition’s eighteenth stop to thousands of excited fans attending the 5th annual A Celebration of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort during events on Friday, January 26th. Milan Deputy Mayor Anna Scavuzzo attended the celebration as a representative [of] the city.

In partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, GES Events created the 1,600-square-meter experiential exhibition, where visitors are able to enjoy dramatic displays inspired by the Harry Potter film sets and see the amazing craftsmanship behind authentic costumes, props and creatures from the films. D’Alessandro e Galli, Sold Out and Encore Productions are partnering with GES to present the exhibition in Milan.

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 their favorite Hogwarts™ houses, then leads them inside 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 Milan for a limited time only, will be open daily. Timed-entry tickets are required, and the last entry will be one hour before the closing of the exhibition. Tickets to the exhibition are on sale at harrypotterexhibition.it. 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.

I have been a fan of Harry since 2000, a fan of MuggleNet since 2005, and a MuggleNet team member since 2013. I believe in the power of stories to bring people together, and nothing does that quite like Harry Potter. I live in Toronto, Canada.
