Calling all Muggles: The Harry Potter Exhibition is coming to Singapore
Did you weep inconsoleably as you watched the closing credits of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II,” distressed by the knowledge that the adventures of J.K. Rowling’s young Hogwarts characters were finally over?
If you answered “yes,” you might want to keep that to yourself. But do check out the traveling Harry Potter Exhibition, coming to Singapore's ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands this June.
Visitors can experience recreated Harry Potter film sets like the Gryffindor Boys' Dormitory, which features the actual four-poster beds Harry and Ron used in the movie, a Hogwarts classroom, Hagrid’s hut, the Forbidden Forest and the Great Hall.
Movie props will be on display too, including Harry's glasses and his wand, Hermione’s Yule Ball gown, the Golden Snitch and the Marauder’s Map.
Quidditch fans can check out Quaffles and toss balls used in the game in the exhibition's special Quidditch gallery.
There's also a row of pots where you can try to pull a screaming mandrake out of the dirt in the Hogwarts' herbology classroom.
Afterwards, pick up some chocolate frogs, Hogwarts' scarves, wands or other collectibles in the gift shop.
It's the first Southeast Asian stop for the Harry Potter Exhibition tour, which comes to Singapore following a five-month stint in Sydney. Organizers have yet to announce the tour's next stop after Singapore.
The exhibition will run from June 2 until September 30, 2012. Tickets are on sale via the ArtScience Museum website and all Marina Bay Sands box offices. Entry is S$14 for kids and S$24 for adults.
