must to go see. There is so much to look at, it took us over 2 hours to go

I haven't been yet but this is what I've heard:
~Nope, they pick lie five volunteers or something
~It's not big, but not exactly tiny either
~yes you can
~No it doesn't (That'd be cool)
I've heard the gift shop's awesome too!
OMG dose it come 2 the UK??
Hmmm,the Marauders Map looks different,maybe it's from the movie
that's coming this year....
it probably looks different partly because it isn't animated and also
because nothing looks exactly the same in real life
Ahhh I can't wait to see this! SO AWESOME! :D
The gift shop is cool but way overpriced.
oh to be able to get to Chicago :(
That sucks, but it may come to somewhere near you soon. I'm going in a
couple of weeks. I'm hoping it'll be as good as people keep saying
Oh. my. GOD!!!! I get to see this in a couple of weeks!!!!! I'm so freaking
I really want to go but I live in new york I was thinking about going by train
but I don't know how much it is
um... its about $50...
Ooh I saw it TODAY! I got to sit in Hagrids chair! (It's BIG.) They have
some stuff on quiddich, too. You also get to see... wait, should I spoil it? I
think not. (BUT HAGRIDS CHAIR IS HUGE!!!)
My friend and I split the cost of a $4 chocolate frog and an $8 box of
fudge flies. I felt kinda stupid spending that much but whatever. The
postcards were kinda pricy too at 69 cents each.

postcards, how much would you spend? $51.93.

7- Why do they think the Marauder’s Map looks different? It probably
looks different partly because it isn't animated and also because
nothing looks exactly the same in real life.

SCRIPT: HARRY POTTER – THE EXHIBITION
So, we are really excited to share with you the world premiere of the Harry
Potter Exhibition. We opened on the April 30 and the whole experience starts
right here, where all the guests come in and we’ll pick a volunteer out, and
they’ll be able to be sorted.
This is over 12000 square feet of Harry Potter artifacts, all original artifacts from
the entire film series. We’ve even got some things from Half Blood Prince,
which are pretty exciting. So, it starts here and we can’t wait to give you a little
bit of a sneak preview. So, let’s step inside.
So, once you pass this sorting hat area, you are in the pre-show and the pre-
show highlights all the posters from the films. We got two slots left from the last
two films and then everybody here gets some introduction to the Harry Potter
So, one of the most exciting areas of the exhibition is, of course, the boys’
dormitory. Here we highlight both elements from Harry as well as Ron. We’ve
got the Golden Egg. We’ve got Ron and Harry’s dress uniforms, and the beds
here in the dormitory are actually directly from the movie set.
In addition, we highlight, of course, Harry’s wand and his glasses, which we
think everybody, of course, wants to see and those are positioned right next to
the Marauder’s map. In the exhibition, we wanted to highlight all of the different
classrooms, and one of the ones in particular that we wanted to highlight were
the Mandrakes. I think everybody loves to hate these little guys, but they are
really, really fun to play with.
In Hagrid’s hut there is a lot of things to see. He, obviously, loves the creatures
that populate the different areas around Hogwarts. His hut can be a little small
and contained, especially when you are dealing with a half giant.
We also wanted to highlight some pretty exciting things from the Forbidden
Forest and one in particular I’m really excited to show you and that is the
Hungarian Horntail dragon.
In the Great Hall area of the exhibition, you get to see an amazing amount of
artifacts, all that were featured in various film sequences from the Great Hall.
One of my favorites is you’re able to see Dumbledore’s costumes up close.
These are really, really amazing. You certainly get glimpses of the detail in the
films, but nothing like when you get to see it up close and in person.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this sneak preview of the Harry Potter exhibition. That
was just a tiny, tiny fraction of what you’ve got in store for you here. So, we
worked a long time on it; we had an incredible crew. We hope you get an
opportunity to check out the exhibition at the Museum of Science and Industry
in Chicago, if not, we’ll be announcing further venues in the next couple of
So, thank you very much for your time, and we hope you enjoy Harry Potter The
