In partnership with Warner Bros.

Other internationally-recognized themed exhibitions created by the company including Titanic: The Exhibition, The Hunger Games: The Exhibition, Jurassic World: The Exhibition, and Downton Abbey: The Exhibition.

“We are honored to be entrusted with the iconic Harry Potter brand and excited to develop and share an exhibition experience that celebrates the magic of the Wizarding World,” said Tom Zaller, CEO of Imagine Exhibitions. “We look forward to working with world-class partners, promoters, and sponsors to bring an all-new Harry Potter: The Exhibition to fans around the globe.”

For over 20 years, magical stories from the Wizarding World have captivated fans of all ages through seven novels (which have sold over 500 million copies worldwide), eight Harry Potter films, the award-winning stage show “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” and the first two of the five-part Fantastic Beasts film series.

Harry Potter: The Exhibition will build on that success to provide a comprehensive touring exhibition to the Wizarding World’s devoted fans and celebrate the most iconic moments of the films and stories through an immersive, behind-the-scenes exhibition experience.

From the mysterious Hogwarts Castle to the magnificent Ministry of Magic, this groundbreaking touring exhibition will present curated environments to honor the beloved characters, settings, and beasts seen in the films while also exploring the filmmaking magic that brought them to life. Visitors will see authentic props and original costumes from the films as they engage with innovative and magical environments and installations.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the experts at Imagine Exhibitions on this all-new Harry Potter exhibition,” said Peter van Roden, senior vice president of Global Themed Entertainment at Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “Everyone involved with this project is committed to bringing a masterfully crafted newly innovative Wizarding World experience to fans around the world.”
