Harry Potter and the Cursed Child won’t be the only Chosen One attraction in the Big Apple next year. The British Library’s Harry Potter: A History of Magic exhibit will be moving to New York in late 2018.
The new exhibit opens at the British Library this October before making its move to the United States a year later. According to Pottermore, Harry Potter: A History of Magic “will unveil rare books, manuscripts and magical objects from the British Library’s collection, capturing the traditions of folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter stories. Exploring the subjects studied at Hogwarts, the exhibition will include original drafts and drawings by J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter illustrator Jim Kay – all on display for the first time.”
The United States version of the exhibit “will evolve to include US-specific artifacts and items from the collection of US Harry Potter publisher Scholastic.”
The exhibit sounds like a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view special items from the history of Harry Potter with your own eyes. You can bet we’ll be visiting the exhibit either in England or America as soon as possible.
And if you can’t make it to either, here’s some good news: Bloomsbury and Scholastic will be publishing new books that detail all of the artifacts. The U.K. and U.S. get Harry Potter: A Journey Through a History of Magic on October 20. A second book with even more details and artifacts will be published this October in the U.K. and next October in the U.S.:
