Fantastic Beasts: The Wonder of Nature is an international traveling exhibition that showcases magical creatures featured in the Wizarding World alongside the real-world animals that may have inspired J.K. Rowling’s creations. It was established for guests of all ages, and the average ticket price is around US$24. The Natural History Museum, Warner Bros., and the BBC Studios Natural History Unit teamed up to produce the exhibition.
The exhibition took two years to put together and highlights the work of Magizoologist Newt Scamander, as well as that of real-life explorers and zoologists in the Muggle world. The exhibition also illuminates some of the creatures that are thought to have inspired mythical beasts throughout the centuries. Visitors can also explore magical creature props from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts film series.
Fantastic Beasts: The Wonder of Nature debuted on December 9, 2020, at London’s Natural History Museum and closed on January 3, 2022. It then opened at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, Canada, on June 11, 2022, where it will remain through January 2, 2023.
