A 'Harry Potter' Museum Exhibit is Coming to New York

If you'd like to get your Hogwarts education without hopping across the pond, an upcoming museum exhibit might be right up your alley.

The New-York Historical Society Museum and Library recently announced the Harry Potter: A History of Magic exhibit, which will be open in October of 2018. This will be the second stop on the exhibit's tour, after its current run at the British Library.

"Capturing the traditions of folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter stories, Harry Potter: A History of Magic unveils rare books, manuscripts, and magical objects from the collections of the British Library, New-York Historical Society, U.S. Harry Potter-publisher Scholastic, and other special collections." the Society's website explains. "Visitors can explore the subjects studied at Hogwarts and see original drafts and drawings by J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter illustrators Mary GrandPré and Jim Kay."

This exhibit comes to the United States at a pretty perfect time, as September will mark the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone being published within the country. It also will come about as the franchise's cultural impact is still going strong, with Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald in theaters, and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child presumably still running on Broadway.

If you can't make it to New York to see the exhibit, Scholastic will be able to help you experience some of it. In the fall of 2018, the publishing company is expected to released Harry Potter: A History of Magic, which will compile much of the exhibition into a coffee table book.

The Harry Potter: A History of Magic exhibit will be on display from October 5th, 2018 to January 27th, 2019. Members of the New-York Museum will be able to reserve tickets beginning February 14th at 12pm. Tickets for the general public will go on sale in April of 2018.
