Harry Potter™: The Exhibition extended until September 2 due to popular demand
Utrecht, June 14, 2017 – Due to great success and popular demand from fans, Harry Potter™: The Exhibitionwill be extended one-time through September 2, 2017. Following its stop in The Netherlands, the exhibition will move on to a yet-to-be-annouced city in Southern Europe. The exhibition in Utrecht will shortly welcome its 200.000th visitor.
Since its world premiere in Chicago, the exhibition has received more than 4 million visitors and has included stops in Boston, Toronto, Seattle, New York, Sydney, Singapore, Tokyo, Paris and Shanghai. Tickets for the exhibition in Utrecht are available at www.harrypotterexpo.nl.
In partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, GES created the 1,400-square-meter experiential exhibition, where visitors can enjoy dramatic displays inspired by the Harry Potter film sets and see the amazing craftsmanship behind authentic costumes, props and creatures from the films. MOJO is partnering with GES to present the exhibition in Utrecht.
From the moment guests enter Harry Potter: The Exhibition they are immediately drawn into 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. 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 baby Mandrake in the Herbology classroom vignette, and even tour a re-creation of Hagrid’s hut and sit in his giant-sized armchair.
The exhibition in Utrecht will be open daily until September 3rd. Timed-entry tickets are required, and the last entry will be one-half hour before the closing of the exhibition. Tickets to the exhibition are on sale at www.harrypotterexpo.nl.
An exclusive audio tour is also available, providing behind-the-scenes insight into the making of the Harry Potterfilms, with commentary from the producers, prop designers, costume designers and creature designers.
