Harry Potter: The Exhibition is an international traveling exhibition that features hundreds of authentic props, costumes, artifacts, and set dressings from the films. It was created for guests of all ages, and the average ticket price is around $25.00. The exhibition is 10,000 to 14,000 square feet depending on the host venue. Global Experience Specialists, a leading exhibition and events company, created the exhibition.
Warner Bros. Consumer Products spent three years selecting the items to be displayed. After Deathly Hallows – Part 2 finished filming, items from that film were added to the exhibition. It is designed to immerse guests using as many sensory experiences as possible. There is also, of course, a gift shop to buy official Harry Potter merchandise. No photography is allowed in the exhibition, and an optional audio tour is available.
There will be a new Wizarding World exhibition, which is currently in development and will make its debut in 2022 with its first stop in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The new exhibition will feature characters, settings, and beasts from Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts, and the expanded Wizarding World franchise with an immersive behind-the-scenes experience. This new exhibition will be larger than the first exhibition – between 10,000 and 20,000 square feet.
The original exhibition toured between April 2009 and March 2020 and made stops in 20 countries across North America, Australia, Asia, and Europe. The new exhibition will revisit North America and Europe as well as adding new stops in Latin America, the Asia-Pacific region, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA).
So far the exhibition has been hosted in the following locations, in reverse chronological order (first stop is at the bottom). You can also read our staff and fan reports from each location, including our coverage of special events.
