Wish they could come to where I live. But that sounds good, too.

I have yet to see it. Hopefully, the Exhibition site will update showing other tour stops in the near future, so that I can at least see if it’s possible for me to go to it.

I’m sure they have a good idea of where it’s going but they don’t release that info too far in advance so that the current site gets more people traveling from other areas.

I just went to see it in Boston yesterday (Feb5, 2010) and I was disappointed. I was expecting to see actual artifacts used in the movies but in most cases I think the “artifacts” presented were created just for the exhibition. A case in point was Hagrid’s clothing. It was huge, it would have fit an 8’ tall person, yet the actor that plays Hagrid is only 6’1". Obviously during filming they used the technique of forced perspective to make him appear larger, but his clothes would not have been huge! Another disappointment were Harry and Ron’s beds- they were really small, not like the large beds shown in the movies. Finally, and most fatally, Harry’s acceptance letter- the letter in the exhibition was TYPED, anyone who watched the movies would know that when Hagrid gave it to Harry it was HANDWRITTEN! Overall the exhibit was full of eye candy and was fun, but as I said it was not what I expected.
