First of the Props Arrive in Chicago for Harry Potter, The Exhibition


Mar 18, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

Thanks to WB who let us know the first of the props have arrived in Chicago, as preparations are well underway for the opening of Harry Potter, The Exhibition. Today, the Flying Ford Anglia arrived in the Windy City, and you can see a photo of it here via the Official WB Harry Potter Widget. No word if the car flew to the city or was delivered via ordinary Muggle transportation methods ;)

As readers will recall, Harry Potter, the Exhibition is a traveling display of artifacts and sets seen in the beloved Harry Potter film series. The first stop in the tour is Chicago, Illinois where the exhibition will open at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry next month on April 30 and will run until September 27, 2009. Tickets and additional information about the exhibit can be found via this link.
