Warner Bros. announced yesterday that their “Potter” museum exhibition, which traveled from Chicago to Boston to Seattle, would be having a fourth and final stop in New York City at Discovery Times Square Marquee before continuing its journey outside the United States. The exhibition will open on April 5 and run for five months.
Increasing the excitement is the fact that the New York exhibition will add new props from both parts of “Deathly Hallows” to the show’s already vast collection. Perhaps we should expect some horcruxes on display?
To be fair, Warner Bros. was already more than willing to show off the horcruxes to fans at the WB booth at San Diego Comic-Con over the summer. But there are plenty of other goodies that we would love to see specific to the final two “Harry Potter” films. There’s everything in the Room of Requirement that will be seen in “Part 2,” and Bellatrix Lestrange’s Gringott’s vault and the entirety of Godric’s Hollow to swoon over. And we would love to see Fleur’s wedding dress hanging up next to Hermione’s Yule Ball gown.
There’s already plenty of reasons to go see The Exhibition if you’re a “Potter” fan. Having visited the exhibit myself, my personal highlights included the Death Eater wanted posters and the giant self-portraits that Gilderoy Lockheart used to hang in his office. (No, I won’t apologize for being a sucker for Kenneth Branagh.) But there’s also Hagrid’s cabin and a Great Hall recreation to look forward to, as well as an area devoted entirely to Quidditch. In other words, there’s something for everyone, just as long as you love “Potter.”
