Harry Potter the Exhibition Imagine

Imagine Exhibitions, a leader in worldwide travelling exhibitions and entertainment, has partnered with Warner Bros. Themed entertainment and EMC Presents to create Harry Potter: The Exhibition, the most comprehensive touring exhibition on the Wizarding World yet.

The exhibition will start its global tour at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in early 2022 before heading to venues in Latin America, the Asia-Pacific region, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Bringing the Wizarding World to life

The opening date and ticket on-sale dates for the eagerly-awaited show will be announced in the next few months.

Using cutting-edge developments in immersive design and technology, it will take guests behind the scenes of the beloved films and stories, including Fantastic Beasts and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Iconic moments will be brought to life with carefully crafted environments as well as authentic props and original costumes from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films. The exhibition is designed to be a unique touring experience, guaranteed to enchant both new and devoted Wizarding World fans.

“This exhibition will be unlike any other Wizarding World touring exhibition. The inclusion of technology, attention to detail and integration of magical touches created by our partners at Imagine Exhibitions is truly unique,” says Peter van Roden, Senior Vice President of Warner Bros. Themed Entertainment. 

“We are elated to be launching the world tour at the Franklin Institute and for fans to be able to have another way to experience the Wizarding World.”
