Fans still have a few more weeks to visit Harry Potter: The Exhibition at Discovery Times Square in New York City before it closes on September 5 and heads overseas.

Tickets are available for purchase online at, at the Discovery Times Square box office (226 West 44th Street) or by calling (866) 987-9692.

Harry Potter: The Exhibition has been traveling across North America since 2009 and features original props and costumes used in the eight "Harry Potter" films. It first opened in Chicago and has since made stops in Boston, Toronto, and Seattle.

Its first international stop will be in Sydney, Australia at the Powerhouse Museum from November 19, 2011 to March 18, 2012.

I was able to see it yesterday in NYC (after coming by train, and if anyone’s been watching the news, you might understand how dedicated a potter fan one would have to be XD ). Get to New York if you can, it is fantastic—of particular interest are the props that even the most keen-eyed among us probably didn’t spot in the films. Lockhart’s full quiz that he gave the second years (and the very funny answers), along with a questionnaire presented to all the teachers by Umbridge (do you think it’s important to demand respect? Do you take risks?) are very detailed, and more importantly, extremely amusing. Don’t bother with reading the signs along the exhibit though—it’s mostly recycled summary, and while the crowd isn’t rushed, you’re definitely on a schedule. My only disappointment was the gift shop. XD I was expecting over-priced, but some of the items have a 200% markup from their online counterparts at the wb online store and the noble collection, and I was disappointed that there was really nothing “exhibit exclusive” to purchase.

Hmm…wonder if I can talk my husband into a weekend in NYC. He’s not a HP fan, so this could be a tough sell!

I was lucky enough to get to see it in Chicago and it was amazing!!!! The detail that went into the books and movies was also out into the exhibit experience. I would love to get the chance to see it all again. I would have to say that Hagrid’s Hut by far was my favorite… It was cool to get to sit in his big chair.
