Warner Bros. Consumer Products announced Sydney, Australia's Powerhouse Museum as the next destination for Harry Potter: The Exhibition. The exhibition will open on the 19th November and will run until the 18th March, 2012. The Powerhouse Museum will be the first venue to host the exhibition outside of North America and the sixth venue to host the exhibition in general. You can find a promotional picture released by WB of some young Harry Potter fans in front of a Knight Bus and the Sydney Opera House right here in our galleries.

The director of the Powerhouse Museum is quoted in a press release as saying:

“Harry Potter’s world has captured the imagination of children and adults around the world. We are excited to bring his enchanted world to the Powerhouse for its first and only stop in Australia,” said Dr Dawn Casey, director, Powerhouse Museum. “We invite all Harry Potter fans and anyone with an interest in the stunning creativity and skill which goes into making these stories come alive to come and see this truly magical exhibition.”
Have a look at the Powerhouse Museum website for more information on the exhibition's next stop!

Glad to see that it’s still traveling and that other countries get to see it. I saw it in Chicago a few years ago.

I flew up to Toronto and saw it, along with an Indy car race the same weekend… It was totally great!

Glad to hear that it is leaving North America! I would have liked to have seen it before it went abroad.

I was hoping for a european destination… I can’t believe that Harry’s homeland will still have to wait to host this exhibition. Incredible. I’m happy for Australia but it’s a bit sad to realize that we don’t seem to have enough importance here to host this event, at least for now…

Well, even though I’m raging about it not even considering coming to Brizzie, I’m still glad that it’s coming to Australia. Luckily I’m finishing school this year so I’ll be able to go down and see it otherwise, I would be crying right now.
