Calling all fans of Harry Potter, the moment that you are all waiting for has arrived! Harry Potter: The Exhibition has finally made its way to the ArtScience Museum in Singapore and will be on display from 2 June to 30 September 2012! Fans will be brought into the world of Harry Potter as hundreds of artifacts, authentic costumes and props from all eight Harry Potter films will be on display right before your very eyes.
With the exhibition inspired from the epic film series, fans will enter into the magical world of Harry Porter and journey through the famous wizard’s world to experience the wonders of the various sets in the film such as Hogwarts Castle, Gryffindor common room, Hagrid’s hut, and the Great Hall.
When there’s magic, you can’t forget about mystical creatures and evil baddies lurking around! Magical life-size figures from The Forbidden Forest like the Centaur, a Thestral, and a giant Acromantula will be on display. Not forgetting the Dark Forces, where the costumes of Voldemort and his Death Eaters can be found.
Fans can also interact with the exhibits too which in turn will product noise and speech.
I was at the media preview of Harry Potter: The Exhibition and had a rare opportunity to take a photo with the twins, James and Oliver Phelps, who acted in the movie, Harry Potter. They are extremely tall and friendly at the same time!
The overall exhibit was very impressive as the designer took pain to source every piece of artifact and put them together in a beautifully decorated hall. I felt like I was in the actual movie set for a while especially the Great Hall! It was very stunning with colourful glass mosaic shining through. Scenes of the Harry Potter movie are also shown on the TV screens around the exhibit hall to bring back memories of fans as they view the exhibits. I am sure fans of Harry Potter will be extremely immersed with the exhibition for an up-close and intimate Harry Potter experience with the audio guide listed by numbers across the exhibits.
Over at the Harry Potter souvenir shop, Harry Potter fans will be thrilled that replicas such as magical wands, accessories, costumes to even maps are on sale. Do remember to check out if you’re visiting the exhibition!
Harry Potter: The Exhibition is definitely the adventure of the year for all Harry Potter fans and you have to visit it once in a lifetime. It will be happening in Singapore at the ArtScience Museum from 2 June to 30 September 2012. What are you waiting for?
