Early Access Tickets to “Harry Potter: The Exhibition” for Harry Potter Fan Club Members
If you love a wizarding world experience, the upcoming Harry Potter: The Exhibition is probably already on your radar and your Extendable Ear is no doubt poised and ready, waiting to hear more news. Back in July, we reported that the exhibition would be making its magical way around the globe next year, with its premiere set to be held at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
In an email to Harry Potter Fan Club members, it was revealed that tickets will go on general sale on November 3 through the Franklin Institute website, with the exhibition opening on February 18, 2022. Fan Club members also received an early access code to purchase their tickets now.
The all-new behind-the-scenes exhibition promises to be a groundbreaking experience, utilizing “best-in-class immersive design and technology.“ Visitors will be able to get up close to props and original costumes, engage with “beautifully crafted“ magical environments honoring pinnacle moments from the much-loved series, and explore the filmmaking magic that brought the characters and sets to life.
The team behind Harry Potter: The Exhibition guarantees that this will be “the most comprehensive touring exhibition ever presented about the wizarding world.“ We think it sounds rather wonderful.
According to the Fan Club presale, daytime admission tickets are for entry to the exhibition before 5:00 p.m. For timed entry tickets to the exhibition as well as entry to the museum, the rates are $43 for adults (ages 12–64), $39 for children (ages 3–11), $41 for seniors (age 65+), and $41 for members of the military (active and retired).
Evening admission tickets are available for Thursday to Sunday only. Entry is between 5:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m., and the exhibition closes at 8:00 p.m. For a timed entry ticket to the exhibition only, the rate is $30.
After wowing audiences at the Franklin Institute, the exhibition will wind its way through Latin America, the Asia-Pacific region, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
Harry Potter: The Exhibition has toured the globe before. The original exhibition traveled through 20 countries across North America, Australia, Asia, and Europe between April 2009 and March 2020. Check out the video below to see what the exhibition looked like back in 2009.
