This exhibit requires an additional ticket with a specified entry time.

Enjoy a first-hand look inside the famous wizard’s magical world in Harry Potter™: The Exhibition.

This world-premiere exhibit is your chance to experience the craftsmanship of more than 200 authentic artifacts from the Harry Potter films, displayed in settings inspired by the film sets.

Along the way, fans will get an up-close and personal look at some of their favorite props and costumes from the Harry Potter films. Harry’s original wand and eyeglasses, elaborate outfits from the Yule Ball, and Gryffindor™ school uniforms are just some of the iconic items on display. They will also be able to take a tour through Hagrid’s hut, enter a Quidditch™ area to toss a “Quaffle,” and may even encounter a few creatures like Buckbeak™ or a giant Acromantula spider along the way.

The Museum of Science and Industry is pleased to invite you to experience this imaginative world for yourself in the world premiere of Harry Potter: The Exhibition. This exhibition will be the only Midwest stop during the exhibit’s U.S. tour.
