Seattle, WA: Harry Potter Exhibition Opens at Pacific Science Center on October 23, 2010

Posted on Friday, October 22nd, 2010 10:42 AM

Fans of Harry Potter in Seattle will be able to get up close and personal with the magical world of wizards when Harry Potter™: The Exhibition opens tomorrow, October 23, 2010, at the Pacific Science Center.

The exhibition will run through January 30, 2011, and tickets are available online at pacificsciencecenter.org or by calling 800-664-8775.

For the first time, the 10,000 square foot exhibit will feature original items from the two-part finale to the popular book and movie series: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2. Other items from the previous movies will be on display as well.

"Through the art and technological wizardry of movie-making, the Harry Potter films have brought to life an enchanting and complex world," said Bryce Seidl, president and CEO for Pacific Science Center. "As one of the Northwest’s leading cultural institutions, the Science Center is excited to offer our visitors this rare opportunity to immerse themselves in the magical world of Harry Potter. We are confident that this exhibition will attract visitors of all ages — some of whom may never have visited a science center before."

When the exhibition was in Chicago in 2009, attendees started with getting sorted at the entrance, and then could proceed through other sets, including Hagrid's hut and the Great Hall. It was a great experience for the group of Harry Potter fans that we took to the exhibition, so if you get the chance, it's well worth seeing!

Pacific Science Center - Boeing IMAX Theater will be showing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1: An IMAX 3D Experience when it opens on November 19, 2010, so that might make a good combination to round out the experience.

Harry Potter: The Exhibition opens at 10 a.m. on Saturday, October 23, 2010, and runs through Sunday, January 30, 2011. The exhibition requires a time-entry ticket and guests are encouraged to purchase their tickets early to ensure the best date and time.

Tickets for the exhibition can be purchased at the Science Center box office, through the website pacificsciencecenter.org or by phone at 800-664-8775. General public admission to Harry Potter: The Exhibition is $26 for adults; $24 for seniors (65 and over) and youth (6-15); $17 for children (ages 3-5). A daytime ticket includes admission to all of Pacific Science Center’s exhibits.
