In exhibitions, visitors get to see Harry’s glasses, his invitation to attend Hogwarts and his wand. Other than this, following exhibits are on display.
Global Entertainment Services, which set up the exhibition, nabbed Harry’s and Ron Weasley’s beds directly from the set in Leavensdale.
Visitors can step into Professor Sprout’s herbology classroom in the exhibition’s mandrake area.
Inside the half-giant Hagrid’s humble abode, visitors can sit in an oversize chair and get an up-close look at the Book of Monsters.
Just outside of Hagrid’s hut is a scale model of hippogriff Buckbeak, a creature pivotal to the plot of Prisoner of Azkaban.
Harry Potter fans have the promise of more wizarding adventures after JK Rowling launched a mysterious website called ‘Pottermore’. Pottermore, which Rowling created in partnership with Sony, will include an interactive reading experience of the Harry Potter books. Fans will also be able to buy audio books and, for the first time, Harry Potter novels as ebooks.The site goes live in October, but some users will be able to enter early. Additional details about that will be revealed on the site on July 31, but Rowling dropped a clue for those aching to enter the site early: “Follow the Owl.”
