“Harry Potter: A History of Magic” Exhibit is Now Online


If you are a Harry Potter fan here is some good new for you. There is now an online exhibit called “Harry Potter: A History of Magic” made available to the public through Google Arts & Culture.

This online exhibit is part of the#HarryPotterAtHome movement by the Wizarding World franchise team. Their goal is to find ways for fans to enjoy the Harry Potter books and movies, at home,  while waiting out the Covid-19 pandemic.

This comes after  J.K. Rowling allowed a temporary waiving of the licencing fees so  teachers could read Harry Potter to their students online.

Now this exhibit can come to everyone via the internet. The actual exhibit is in The British Library in London. It started in 2017 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the series, and is still going.

What can I see?

There are actually quite a few elements available in the online version of the exhibit from Q&A’s, to Art by Jim Kay, to how the story came to be, notes from JK Rowling, and more.

According to Forbes:

“The collection is divided—like the original exhibition—into various subjects, most of which are taught at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry: PotionsHerbologyCharmsAstronomyDivinationDefence Against the Dark ArtsCare of Magical Creatures, and Alchemy.”

It really is a very interesting exhibit and deep dive into how Harry Potter came to be and what it is. Check it out HERE.
