A reminder that later this week, Harry Potter, the Exhibition is due to open at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. As we've reported many times before, this traveling exhibition will feature props and sets used in the Harry Potter films. Last February we told you fans attending this exhibit will be able to walk on a Quidditch pitch, and see Hagrid's Hut. Today, the Museum let us know their website has been updated with a brand new detailed guide, plus new photos of how the exhibit will look, including a peek at the Gryffindor Common Room, costumes worn during Quidditch World Cup in Goblet of Fire and more. New are details about the Great Hall, Hagrid's Hut  Magical Creatures (Beware of the Horn Tail Dragon and Aragog!) and special Hands On events. Harry Potter fans and guests at the exhibit will now be able to throw a Quaffle, and report to Herbology Class to pull a Mandrake plant, just like we saw in Chamber of Secrets in Herbology class with Hufflepuff Head Professor Sprout. Tickets for the Exhibition are now available; the event runs April 30-September 27th. A  press preview night is being held this Wednesday, and TLC's own Edward will be there to bring you all the details, stay tuned!

OMG, i wish I could go. I really really want to, but I need to get there by plane, and from Australia, it will be lots of money, and I don’t have that kind of money to get there. Oh I wish I could go, it would be so much fun doing all kinds of things from Harry Potter! Oh I wish…..

I am a bit worried about safety precautions, because in the mandrake potting picture, none of the children are wearing ear muffs!

in a way it looks a little bit creepy because normally you get exhabitions that are about people a long time ago, i dunno it just look slighty scarey i think. interesting though, wish i could go to America and see it.
