"What? Harry? Harry who?" "Harry Potter of course!"

This exhibit was so amazingly fun and a must for Harry Potter fanatics. Not only did it contain such memorable items as Ron's Howler from Mrs. Weasley, The Maurader's Map, and The Triwizard cup, but there was also almost every notorious item you could imagine from the films. Some things that we saw but I sadly could not sneak pictures of included, but were not limited to: The locomotive of the Hogwarts Express (full with fog effects!), the robes of almost all the main characters (Ron, Hermoine, Ginny, Neville, Draco, Harry, Ron, Snape, etc.), the vial of Liquid Luck from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry's acceptance letter to Hogwarts, the paper with Harry's punishment from Umbridge ("I will not tell lies"), Death Eater costumes, a couple life-sized chess pieces, the Angel of Death statue from the graveyard in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, everyone's wands (from Ron's broken wand to Dumbledore's!), Fawkes, all the wizard candy you can imagine, the Bloody Baron's costume, Bellatrix's jail uniform, the head of the Hungarian Horntail, and more!
Even better was that some parts of the exhibit were interactive! If you wanted to (and of course, I did), you could sit in Hagrid's huge chair in his hut, throw a Quaffle through the Quidditch hoops, and even pull a Mandrake from it's roots (something i wouldn't recommend, very loud. haha). Sadly now, the exhibit has moved from Boston to Canada. Hopefully it will hit the Philly area soon though so my Potter-obsessed friends can have a go at this fun exhibit. Enjoy the pictures!
