Harry Potter Seattle Exhibition Extended Into February

Events, Kid Friendly — By Michelle Schusterman on January 6, 2011 at 9:15 pm

The Pacific Science Center has just announced that the Harry Potter Exhibition, originally slated to end at the end of this month, has been extended an extra two weeks through February 13th, 2011.

The reason for the extension is the exhibition’s popularity, unsurprising both due to the timing with the release of the Deathly Hallows film, as well as the sheer quality and excitement of the exhibit itself. I’ve actually visited twice, and both times felt the same sense of magic just seeing the detail put into the settings and props for these movies.

“We’re delighted to extend this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for families to step inside Harry Potter’s world. And for the many fans that have already sat in Hagrid’s chair, scored a point for their Quidditch team, or marveled at seeing Buckbeak’s feathers up close—now is their chance to relive this incredible experience with family and friends,” said Bryce Seidl, President and CEO of the Pacific Science Center.

“The response from fans eager to immerse themselves in the Harry Potter exhibition is overwhelming. Seeing is believing with the detail and artistry that brings this world to life, and members and guests to Pacific Science Center have been wowed at every turn,” he added.

The exhibition is 10,000 square feet, and not a bit of it wasted, from chatty wizard paintings adorning the walls to Umbridge’s blood-scrawled “I will not tell lies” parchment. Pieces and props from the hit Deathly Hallows: Part One are interspersed throughout the exhibition.
