Cheers to Boston, which will be the next stop for Harry Potter, the Exhibit  featuring many props and sets used in the beloved Harry Potter films. Currently open at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry until September 27, we've just gotten word the exhibit will move to the East Coast, as the Museum of Science in Boston, Mass states the Exhibition is to open Sunday, October 25, 2009 and run through Sunday, February 21, 2010. Tickets are now available via this link. UPDATE: Photos from Announcement now in our galleries. UPDATE 1: The Boston Globe is now carrying this news,  as noted by the following:

"With a dramatic and perhaps magical flourish, the Museum of Science today lowered a massive red velvet curtain today to reveal two artifacts from its next exhibit: A flowing brown robe worn by a character named Professor Slughorn and a 500-pound, 10-foot tall chess piece... "The exhibit will give our visitors -- wizards and muggles alike -- the opportunity to stop into the world of Harry Potter," Ioannis Miaoulis, president and director of the Museum of Science said this morning at the announcement.

In statement issued by the museum, Miaoulis added," We're confident that this exhibition will attract visitors of all ages -- some of whom may never have visited a science center. This exhibit will spark their curiosity and imagination, leading them to experience the excitement of discovery that's also at the heart of the Museum's science and technology exhibits and programs."

In a press release sent to TLC, it notes that "after its Boston run, the exhibition will be displayed in other major cultural and entertainment venues, museums and institutions in the U.S. and internationally.

I was lucky enough to be in Chicago this past weekend and was able to see the exhibit. It was so neat to see the it as well as the rest of the museum. Plan to make a day of it if you go, it’s well worth it!

was such a wonderful exhibit! I got to sit in Hagrid’s chair and play with a quaffle!

It wasn’t very long, but it really was worth the $18. It was really fantastic!

It was amazing in Chicago. Even my 5 years enjoyed it, and we had only started reading book1 3 days before we wnet. If you can afford it go…If bringing kids, bring extra cash for the gift shop at the end and yes, you must pass through the gift shop to get out, at least in Chicago.
