EXCITING news for Wizarding World fans! Due to popular demand, Harry Potter: The Exhibition has returned to Spain from April 13, offering fans another chance to see some of the iconic sets and props from the Harry Potter films.
The exhibition is being hosted in the Museu de Les Ciències at the stunning Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències complex in Valencia, for a limited time only.
It is its 20th stop on its worldwide tour and the exhibition’s second sojourn in Spain, having visited Madrid in 2017.
Over five million people have seen the exhibition as it has made its way around the world since its premiere in Chicago in 2009.
Over 460,000 people saw the exhibit in Madrid, and organisers anticipate the Valencia location will be just as popular.
Robin Stapley, Vice President Design and Creative at GES Events, which created the 1,500-square-metre experiential exhibition, said: “We are excited that the twentieth tour stop of Harry Potter: The Exhibition will be in the beautiful city of Valencia. The exhibition was a great success in Madrid and we hope fans new and old will have a chance to visit this exhibition and relive their favorite moments from the films.”
From the moment guests enter Harry Potter: The Exhibition they are immediately drawn into the world of Harry Potter.
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.
Guests are greeted by an exhibit host who sorts several lucky fans into one of the Hogwarts houses and then leads them into the exhibition where their journey to favourite scenes from the Harry Potter films begins.
The exhibition includes several interactive elements. You can toss a Quaffle ball in the Quidditch area, pull up a squealing Mandrake in the Herbology classroom vignette, and even tour a re-creation of Hagrid’s hut and sit in his enormous armchair. An audio tour is also available, which features behind-the-scenes commentary from the producers, prop designers, and costume and creature designers.
Timed entry tickets are required, which cost €13.90 exclusive of booking charges.
