A Spell Is Cast At the Ontario Science Centre With Harry Potter: The Exhibition

Harry Potter film stars James and Oliver Phelps, who play Fred and George Weasley in the Harry Potter series, attended the opening of Harry Potter: The Exhibition at its exclusive Canadian venue, the Ontario Science Centre, last Thursday (April 8).

Located in a 1,300 square metre exhibit space, this cool new exhibition offers an inside look at the magical world of Harry Potter, allowing families to experience first-hand the amazing craftsmanship of hundreds of authentic props and costumes from the Harry Potter films.

Some of the artifacts include: Professor Snape’s robes; Professor Trelawney’s crystal ball and exotic wardrobe; costumes and props from Professors Lupin™, Lockhart™ and Umbridge™; props and artifacts from the Yule Ball. Immersive settings from the film sets such as the Great Hall, Hagrid’s Hut and the Gryffindor™ common room can be found at the exhibit as well as costumes from characters such as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger and Professor Dumbledore™.

Children will be able to experience activities only available at the famed Hogwarts such as pulling a screaming mandrake from its pot or tossing a Quaffle through a Quidditch™ goalpost.

The exhibition will be on view until Sunday, August 22, 2010 and admission – which includes general admission to the Science Centre’s exhibition halls, is $27.50 for adults; $23.50 for seniors and youth (ages 65+ and 13-17); $20.00 for children (ages 4-12). For Ontario Science Centre members, admission is $14 for adults; $12 for seniors and youth; and $10 for children.

Tickets are now available online at www.OntarioScienceCentre.ca, by calling 416-696-1000, or by visiting the box office.
