The exhibition will open on the 23rd of October, 2010 until the 30th of January, 2011 in Seattle, the only West Coast venue for the travelling exhibit. The press release reports that Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) "was on hand today at the Pacific Science Centre to kick off the announcement."

Last stop of the US I hope. I’m tired of everything taking place there. There are plenty of places who could welcome the exhibition in Europe (or Asia), with certainly a lot of people who’d like to visit it there. I hope the “last stop” thing will be updated and refined in the next few days.

Wow I am glad I went when it was in Chicago! Good news for those close to Seattle. I am sure this can’t be the last US stop, maybe they will add to the exhibit for the next round!

YEEES! I live in Victoria just across the water from Seattle, I’m gonna be there next week but maybe I can convince my parents to go again before the exhibit leaves.

Okay, so for right now this Potter fan feels rather betrayed and sulky. Had they told us in the beginning that there were only going to be 3 or 4 stops in the US I’d have made a better attempt to get to Chicago (or Boston), but no they list one location at a time. Perhaps the exhibit creators don’t think a traveling show is needed now that the Wizarding World is open in Florida. Stinks just the same – it should have hit at least the lower 48 states. I do hope this is the final in round one and that it will return again after hitting spots around the globe. Still for now call me moaning myrtle jr.

Last stop? That just sucks. Do they think there are no Potter fans south of the Mason Dixon line???? What are we non-entities?

"The Chasers throw the Quaffle and put it through the hoops to score," Harry recited. "So -- that's sort of like basketball on broomsticks with six hoops, isn't it?"[br] "What's basketball?" said Wood curiously.[br]"Never mind," said Harry quickly.
