    Make sure you read the details on notes, in books and on the newspapers & magazines.

    Nice tour. No waiting or crowds on a Saturday night. Everything here was used in the films. Great way to appreciate the series' detail.

    HUGE Harry Potter fan but was really disappointed... They advertise props from the movie but all you see are FAKE props. NOT worth the $26. Save your money for the theme park.

    The gift shop was enough for me.

    Was not that impressed with it....it's nice to see all the detail that was put into all the props & costumes, but the crowds of people hovering over everything is annoying. Plus it felt too short.

    They start you off with an introduction then they leave you alone. Wish they'd stick with you the whole way through. Otherwise it was a really cool exhibit.

    Expense sivo! Longa waitio! Lineo extremo longo! Those are spells that this place had put on them. However it was very informative. You can get one audio and share. Don't waste money.

    Screw the audio... Not worth the money if you're a Potterhead (u know ALL the stuff they tell u AND MORE). Also a complete EPIC FAIL in handling the Phelps Twins signing. Make it clearer next time!

    Every Harry Potter Fan will enjoy this exhibition, especially when you first walk into it; Snow is falling and you see the Hogwarts Express. The workers are friendly and the props are fantastic!

    Audio tour is cheap, $7 but the information it contains is so obvious (voldermorts nose is CGI, etc), it is not worth it. Also the volume is too low to share.

    There is a smaller version of the Marauders map included in the book, making it much better value than the map itself.

    If you are a HP fan do not get the audio guide!! Not interesting info is given

    Cristian M. · February 5, 2013
  • Ali W.

    Make sure to get the audioguide! This exhibit isn't really worth it otherwise. It's just props and costumes with minimal description. The audioguide is with the set and costume designers input.

    I was one of the lucky few artifact handlers, hired on to handle the props and costumes. It was an amazing experience getting to do it. Hope everyone enjoyed it. :)

    Spent more time waiting in line than in the actual exhibit. Kinda disappointing, glad that the tickets were free but wish we had stayed home.

    Awesome exhibit but way too many people!

  • Karen N.

    Beware- There seem to be goblins in charge of additional taxes and service charges to the already high ticket price. Pull up the mandrakes and toss quaffles thru the quiddich rings!

  • Kellie B.

    Disappointed. Not worth money.

    I love Hp & this plays on our love for HP! The amusement park has alot more stuff and I know what ur thinking, duh. But put ur money toward that trip. No pics allowed.

    Pretty cool, but the theme park is wayyyyy better.

    Save your money and skip this exhibition. If you do go, be aware that no photography is allowed and if you are caught, the security will make you delete the pics.

    It was cool to see the props but it was way too short. The employees were very nice.

  • Voodoo D.

    An incredible collection of movie props, costumes and set pieces (although the $25 price tag is a bit steep).

    Voodoo D. · May 19, 2011
  • Cara D.

    if you pay with Amex, you get the audio tour for free! David Heyman, producers, & costume designers will give you more info about what it took to make the Harry Potter films come to life.
