Great news today regarding the Harry Potter Exhibition. The traveling exhibit of props and sets seen in the Harry Potter films is due to open April 30, 2009 at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. The print edition of the USA Today has an article that states tickets for this are now available ($15-26.00 USD) via www.msichicago.org, however the site does not yet appear to be updated with this information. The Harry Potter exhibit in Chicago will run until September 7, 2009 before moving to another city. Update: An official announcement is due shortly, with James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley) to be present at the event. This new article says: The museum this morning is announcing it will host “the global
premiere” of the exhibition that will give visitors “the opportunity to
see the craftsmanship of the authentic costumes and props from the
films displayed in settings inspired by the Hogwarts film sets.”

More soon, stay tuned!
