Cambridge Harry Potter Fans in For Treat

harrypottermuseumHarry Potter is visiting the Museum of Science at least in spirit.  The Museum is the second venue to host Harry Potter The Exhibition which has been very popular in Chicago where it first opened.  You have to literally have been hiding under a rock to miss the craze generated by Harry Potter and his books and films.  This is sure to be a popular which is why I posted it this week.  Even now the tickets are being gobbled up.  The exhibit runs from October 25th to February 21st of 2010.  That may seem like a lot of time but since the Boston Museum of Science is the only New England venue to host the exhibit Harry Potter is sure to pull fans from all of our New England states.

The exhibit promises to be pretty cool with exhibits featuring:

more than 200 authentic props and costumes from the Harry Potter films, all displayed in settings inspired by the film sets — including the Great Hall, Hagrid’s hut and the Gryffindor™ common room. View iconic film artifacts such as Harry’s glasses, the Marauder’s Map, and Hermione’s Yule Ball gown, and pause to pull a screeching Mandrake from its pot or try your hand at tossing a “Quaffle.”

Cantabrigians love their science.  With MIT around it is pretty hard not to have some fascination with science and effects which play a role in movies like Harry Potter.  The Museum of Science is technically in Boston but interestingly is partly located in Cambridge.  It participates in many programs with Cambridge institutions like MIT which was the main host for this past year’s Cambridge Science Festival.

If you are a member of the Museum you should have known about this exhibit for a while now.  Membership benefits include discounted prices for exhibits like these.  With membership they are an unbelievable $5 per ticket.  Without membership prices range from $23 to $26 per ticket which for this exhibit is pretty fair if you don’t think you would visit the Museum too often.

Here is the link to buy tickets before they sell out….
