Thanks to WB who let us know the first of the props have arrived in Chicago, as preparations are well underway for the opening of Harry Potter, The Exhibition. Today, the Flying Ford Anglia arrived in the Windy City, and you can see a photo of it here via the Official WB Harry Potter Widget. No word if the car flew to the city or was delivered via ordinary Muggle transportation methods ;)

As readers will recall, Harry Potter, the Exhibition is a traveling display of artifacts and sets seen in the beloved Harry Potter film series. The first stop in the tour is Chicago, Illinois where the exhibition will open at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry next month on April 30 and will run until September 27, 2009. Tickets and additional information about the exhibit can be found via this link.

I wish it wasn’t on a school day, though, then I could go on the 30th!! Grr school!

But I just have a question..I know it opens in Chicago on the 30th..so is the exhibit going to be in Chicago from April 30th to September or is it just on April 30th and then going to a different city the next day?

is confuzzled

Tickets are bought! I’l upload lots of pics for our “to far away from Chicago” friends. It’s a 7 hour drive for me…super worth it.

@Jesicurs93: It’s going to be in Chicago from April through September. Not sure where it will go after September.

It seems fantastic! I intend to see it with my family sometime this summer and hope it proves worth far more than the ticket price. :D
