With the 'Harry Potter' film franchise officially over this summer, there's only a few things a Potterhead can do to extend their fandom mania: a) head to Universal's Wizarding World of Harry Potter b) wait for the 'Deathly Hallows' Ultimate Edition DVDs c) beta-test Pottermore d) read fan fiction or e) visit 'Harry Potter: The Exhibition' in New York City. Given my family's love of the movies (and the fact we've already been to Universal's Wizarding World), we opted for "e" and journeyed to Manhattan for the traveling exhibit at Discovery Times Square.
What Is 'The Exhibition': Currently on its final stop in North America, the Exhibition is a traveling display of craftsman-made costumes, props, and other artifacts that were created specifically for the film series. You can see everything from Snape's signature black robes and Bellatrix LeStrange's Azkaban garb to Harry's Hogwarts trunk and Hagrid's hut decor. After its New York run ends on Sept. 5, the Exhibition heads Down Under to the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney.
