Australian fans of witchcraft and wizardry are thrilled about the recent opening of Harry Potter: The Exhibition at Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum that debuted on November 19, 2011. The exhibition offers fans a first-hand look inside the wizard’s magical world and the opportunity to experience the sets, props and costumes from the much-loved Harry Potter movies.
Kicked off by an opening party and special guest appearance by a Harry Potter film star on November 18th, the exhibition runs for four months (until March 18, 2012) and promises to be a sell out success.
Hundreds of authentic film artefacts will be displayed in settings inspired by locations from Hogwarts™ School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, including the Gryffindor™ common room, Hagrid’s hut, the Great Hall and many more. New original props and costumes from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows™ – Part 1 and the series finale, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows™ – Part 2, will also be on display.
Harry Potter fans are expected to visit from all over Australia as this is the exhibition’s only Australian stop.
The Powerhouse Museum is one of Sydney’s best-loved museums. Along with 14 permanent exhibitions that cover everything from the steam and transport revolutions to space and creating a sustainable future, the Powerhouse has a regular schedule of temporary exhibitions that encourage learning, creativity and play.
Harry Potter: The Exhibition is open seven days a week (except Christmas day) at the Powerhouse Museum, 500 Harris St, Ultimo (close to Darling Harbour, Chinatown, Central Station (Sydney Terminal), Broadway bus station (Railway Square), and Paddy’s Markets Monorail Station).
