Consumer Products. “The Ontario Science Centre is a wonderful venue that will showcase perfectly Harry’s world for fans of all ages to enjoy.”
 
"We are delighted with the reception the exhibition has received in Chicago and Boston and we are honoured to make the Ontario Science Centre the first stop on its international tour," said Eddie Newquist, President, Branded Entertainment, Exhibitgroup/Giltspur. "Fans young and old from around the world have given us tremendous positive feedback, and we are hopeful that all the Harry Potter fans in the Toronto area and beyond will have a chance to visit this one-of-a-kind exhibition."

I’m glad Toronto is getting a chance at the Harry Potter Exhibit! I really wish that they would let the public know where it is going more than just a couple months in advance… I really hope it makes it’s way to the West Coast, more specifically Phoenix, AZ! I went to the Chronicles of Narnia Exhibition and it was AWESOME; I can only imagine that the Harry Potter one would be 100x’s better!

Come to somewhere in the southeastern US!!!! Man, I need to find a way to get to Boston before this thing goes off to Canada. I don’t have an excuse anymore now that I am no longer interviewing at Harvard. :-(

I wish the title of the article would specify WHERE in Ontario this exhibition is being held. Ontario is a big place! For instance, it’s five hour drive from Ottawa to Toronto.

Also, you spelled “Ontario” wrong in the body of the article. “Harry Potter, The Exhibition is on the move again, due to open in Ontaria, Canada in April of 2010.”

Congrats to Canada! As some one currently working at the Exhibit in Boston, I know we will miss it terribly and I hope you will love it as much as I have loved working it!
