“Harry Potter: The Exhibition” Is Coming to New York City

Harry Potter: The Exhibition began touring the globe in 2009, giving Potter fans the chance to immerse themselves in the Wizarding World by coming face-to-face with costumes, sets, and creatures. After already popping up in various places worldwide, fans will be pleased to hear the tour is set to arrive in New York City, New York, for the third time later this year.

While we’re still waiting on a confirmed opening date for the exhibition as well as its specific location, those eager to get their hands on tickets can join the wait list, meaning they will be first to know when tickets go on sale as well as have access to all the latest updates.

The immersive experience allows fans to explore behind-the-scenes moments (including seeing the props, costumes, and sets firsthand), interact with magical technology that lets you choose your favorite Hogwarts House, wand, and Patronus, and take part in the storytelling itself.



According to the official press release, those visiting the New York exhibition will be able to take a look at a first-edition version of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, which will be “encased in a Gringotts-inspired vault and surrounded by inspirational video and literary quotes.”

The exhibition will also feature various galleries, including a Hogwarts Castle gallery that will include Dementors, the Marauder’s Map, and the Whomping Willow, and a Hogwarts House gallery that allows you to select your House alongside the Sorting Hat and engage in various photo opportunities.

Of course, for those wanting to take a piece of Potter home with them, a souvenir shop will be set up selling merchandise and edible treats.

Harry Potter: The Exhibition is currently open in Atlanta, Georgia, and Vienna, Austria. It is also set to open in Paris, France, at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles on April 21.

Will you be visiting Harry Potter: The Exhibition when it returns to New York? We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more information on its opening date and location, so stay tuned!
