Comments0 comments

Harry Potter fans in the Netherlands will finally have the opportunity to step in side the famous wizard world with Harry Potter: The Exhibition! Since its world premiere in Chicago, the exhibition has already received more than 4 million visitors and has included stops in Boston, Toronto, Seattle, New York, Sydney, Singapore, Tokyo, Paris, Shanghai and Brussels. From February 2017, Harry Potter: The Exhibition is finally on Dutch soil.

Harry Potter: The Exhibition is a 1400-square-meter experiential exhibition, where visitors are able to enjoy dramatic displays inspired by the Harry Potter film sets and see the amazing craftsmanship behind authentic costumes, props and creatures from the films. From the moment guests enter the exhibition they are immediately immersed in the world of Harry Potter. Guests are greeted by an exhibit host who sorts several lucky fans into their favorite Hogwarts houses, then leads them inside the exhibition where their journey to favorite scenes from the Harry Potter films begins. 
 
Here's a sneak preview of what to expect (in Dutch):
 
 
The exhibition features settings from the films most popular locations including the Gryffindor common room and dormitory; classrooms like Potions and Herbology; and the Forbidden Forest which are filled with thousands of authentic props, costumes, and creatures 
used in the filming of the iconic series. In addition to the beautiful environments and displays, there are several interactive elements. Guests can enter the Quidditch area and toss a Quaffle ball, pull their own Mandrake in the Herbology classroom vignette, and even tour a re-creation of Hagrid's hut and sit in his giant-sized armchair.
