I do hope the Exhibition will come to Europe. Not a chance that it will come to the Netherlands of course, but England is okay too. I hope they will let us know way in advance though, so I can book my trip around it. There's something else I'd like to visit there, which opens in Spring 2012 ;o)Avatar Imagecharissekin says: Will be going to Sydney in November for sure. Not to be missed.

It is an amazing exhibit that every Harry Potter fan should see! :-D Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: If you have the possibility of going to see it... DO SO! You will be so very glad you did... It is flat awesome, and I NEVER say awesome! lool....Avatar Imagecamila_black08 says: i hope it to come to Brazil :DAvatar Imagegraziboi says: I got the chance to see it in Boston when it was at the museum of science. It was great. I know I'll never make it to the Leavesden studio tour so it was great to have it come to me in a sense. Avatar Imagemoonstone nox says: How international is it going? Coming to Europe aswell?Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: Why didnt it come to the west coast US??? I was hoping for LA so I could plan a trip, now I'll never get to see it. :(Avatar Imageginny_weasley1998 says: Wish I could go!!!!Avatar Imagejacket says: I want to see it! I wish it would come to BC!Avatar Imagetim_2006 says: POTTERMORE Insider has been updated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageErinM says: I saw it in Chicago. It was WONDERFUL to see so many items up close! Loved it! Go and see it if you can :) Avatar Imagetrip_le_threat says: I missed the chance to see this when it was in Toronto. SO sad I missed it. I hope it come back eventually.Avatar Imagezeitgeber says: I was able to see it yesterday in NYC (after coming by train, and if anyone's been watching the news, you might understand how dedicated a potter fan one would have to be XD ). Get to New York if you can, it is fantastic--of particular interest are the props that even the most keen-eyed among us probably didn't spot in the films. Lockhart's full quiz that he gave the second years (and the very funny answers), along with a questionnaire presented to all the teachers by Umbridge (do you think it's important to demand respect? Do you take risks?) are very detailed, and more importantly, extremely amusing. Don't bother with reading the signs along the exhibit though--it's mostly recycled summary, and while the crowd isn't rushed, you're definitely on a schedule. My only disappointment was the gift shop. XD I was expecting over-priced, but some of the items have a 200% markup from their online counterparts at the wb online store and the noble collection, and I was disappointed that there was really nothing "exhibit exclusive" to purchase. Avatar Imagelizzardbreath says: it would have been nice if it came to the south west rather than just to Seattle, we totally got missed here in LA Avatar ImageSpook says: Yes it is and so looking forward to it. Already got my tickets!!!Avatar ImageSpook says: Yes it is and so looking forward to it. Already got my tickets!!!Avatar ImageHermione_Rules says: Cool! Avatar Imageharrypotter4258 says: i have to go to this! my mom finally said yes! it better not be sold out when i buy my tickets!Avatar ImageLauraKeaton says: Hmm...wonder if I can talk my husband into a weekend in NYC. He's not a HP fan, so this could be a tough sell!Avatar Imagetoughpygmypuffs says: It's really amazing!!!Really worth the trip if you live far away from NYC!:) Avatar ImageJeremyp4 says: I was lucky enough to get to see it in Chicago and it was amazing!!!! The detail that went into the books and movies was also out into the exhibit experience. I would love to get the chance to see it all again. I would have to say that Hagrid's Hut by far was my favorite... It was cool to get to sit in his big chair.Avatar Imagemoonfairychyn says: i hope i can see it here in the phillipines..Avatar ImageHalfbloodPrince08 says: I saw it in NYC!!!!Avatar Imagekyrstalkris says: I so want to go, but I-I can't! Grrr! D:<Avatar Imageathena lupen says: i wish i could fly 2 new york 2 go see itAvatar ImageStixvix says: We saw the exhibit in Toronto last summer when we attended a wedding there. It is simply...well...magical. I could have spent so many more hours just savouring it all, but one slow walk through had to do. Don't miss it, it's worth it.Avatar Imagemoxiaomi says: I am a chinese but I love harry so muchAvatar Imageivyneel says: I got to see it when I visited NYC! It really is incredible. Avatar Imagesnapegal27 says: I saw the exhibit when it was in Seattle! It is soooo worth it! I went 4 times!!! They do a really great job of making you feel like you are at Hogwarts, while also displaying the costumes and props! I was so sad to see it leave, I had wanted to go at least 3 more times lolAvatar ImageCorruptedNethicite says: I don't think I'm going to make to NYC. I'll probably have to fly to Sydney around February. Avatar Imagesessionka says: I saw it yesterday!!! It was wonderful. I may try one more time before it leaves. They do it up right. Of course the exhibit ends at the gift shop. Genius marketing. I defy ANYONE to walk out of there without buying anything. :-)Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Loved it!
