In a followup this evening to yesterday's post, Warner Bros. have issued a press release confirming that Seattle's Pacific Science Centre will be the final host for Harry Potter: The Exhibition. The exhibition will open on the 23rd of October, 2010 until the 30th of January, 2011 in Seattle, the only West Coast venue for the travelling exhibit. The press release reports that Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) "was on hand today at the Pacific Science Centre to kick off the announcement."

Update: Photos of Lewis at the announcement in Seattle today can now be seen here in our galleries.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public via the Pacific Science Centre website or by telephoning (206) 443-2001 from this Saturday, 14th of August at 9am; Pacific Science Centre museum members can take part in a special pre-sale starting today, 10th August until 9am on Saturday, 14th of August:

General public admission to Harry Potter: The Exhibition is $26 for adults; $24 for seniors (65 and over) and youth (6-15); $17 for children (ages 3-5) and includes admission to all of Pacific Science Center’s exhibits.
The press release additionally briefly mentions the presence of new items from "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" at the exhibition, as well as the showing of the forthcoming film in IMAX 3D at the Pacific Science Centre's Boeing IMAX Theatre from the 19th of November, 2010:
In partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Global Experience Specialists, Inc. (GES) created the 10,000-square-foot experiential exhibition, which features hundreds of artifacts and costumes from all of the Harry Potter films, including new items from the highly-anticipated, two-part finale to the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

I don’t understand why it is the final stop! They hardly went anywhere! There are so many more big cities they haven’t visited! Is it not making enough money for a bigger tour! I feel so cheated. :(

Is this really the FINAL tour stop, or the last North America stop? Other sites are reporting it as the last US stop so, for once, I hope Leaky is wrong. Can this be confirmed? I’ll feel extremely cheated if it doesn’t go ANYWHERE else in the world. Seems extremely unfair.

It’s the final planned tour stop in the US… not forever.

WAHOOOOOOOOOOOO! SUPER SQUEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!

My daughter just asked me if we’re going to go. Honey, the question is not IF we’re going to go. It’s how many TIMES are we going to go? (Answer: as often as I can afford!!!)

Is it too much to ask that they go to Arizona or even Southern California?
