Step into the Magical World of Harry Potter on 34th Street in NYC! Calling all witches, wizards, and Muggles alike! Popternative recently had the opportunity to experience the Harry Potter Exhibit in New York City where the wonders of the wizarding world come to life like never before. The exhibition offers innovative, interactive technology, as you explore beloved moments from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beast films, as well as the Tony award-winning Broadway production Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
Sydney Scotia attended the exhibit on behalf of Popternative and shares her wizarding adventures below.
Let me take you on a journey through the enchantment that awaits! As soon as I entered, I was sorted into my Hogwarts house. With the Sorting Hat’s wise words, I discovered my true allegiance and proudly wore the colors of my house (Huffelpuff) throughout the exhibit. But the excitement didn’t end there—earning points for my house became a thrilling competition as I explored each room.
From answering trivia questions to participating in magical challenges, every step counted toward the glory of my house! Equipped with an interactive wristband, the magic truly came to life. Tapping my wristband on the golden snitches hidden in each room, I unlocked personalized experiences that recognized me as a wizard. The wristband held my information and provided exclusive content, secret spells, and surprises tailored just for me. It was as if I had stepped into my own wizarding adventure!
Every room offered countless photo opportunities that transported me into the heart of the movies. From posing in front of iconic props like Harry’s glasses or a giant projection of Marauder’s Map to reenacting favorite scenes, I captured the magic at every turn. Sharing these snapshots with fellow Potterheads allowed me to relive the enchantment and spread the love for this extraordinary exhibit! The exhibit showcased an astonishing array of memorabilia and authentic props from the Harry Potter films.
From Hermione’s Time-Turner to Dumbledore’s Pensieve, I stood in awe of the craftsmanship and attention to detail that brought these beloved objects to life. It was a nostalgic journey through the cinematic moments that shaped our love for the wizarding world. The Harry Potter Exhibit on 34th Street in NYC is an immersive experience like no other. Whether you’re a die-hard fan or a curious explorer, this enchanting adventure will ignite your imagination and transport you to a realm of magic and wonder. Don’t miss your chance to become a part of this extraordinary world—it’s an unforgettable journey that will leave you spellbound.
The exhibition is now open seven days a week to visitors of all ages and tickets are available at new-york.harrypotterexhibition.com
