Our Visit To Harry Potter The Exhibition (Atlanta Georgia)

Harry Potter The Exhibition Atlanta Georgia

The reason we chose Atlanta to celebrate our first wedding anniversary was for the Harry Potter exhibition they had. It’s supposed to go away in February so it was either go now or never go. I thought I liked Harry Potter a lot, but my wife is an even bigger fan than I am

Ravenclaw Harry Potter The Exhibition Atlanta Georgia

We’re both Ravenclaws and we definitely wanted to show our house pride. Especially as many casual fans considered themselves as Gryffindors, which isn’t always true.

The exhibition is kind of like a little museum. Took us roughly an hour and a half to go through it all. But we did go rather slow through it.

They have plenty of genuine costumes and movie props from both the Harry Potter movies and the newer Fantastic Beasts films.

And in almost every room there’s some kind of interaction. Unfortunately, you don’t get earmuffs for the mandrakes.

Gift shop Harry Potter The Exhibition Atlanta Georgia

At the end is a very cool but quite expensive gift shop. There was a small insulated Ravenclaw cup I wanted to use for work until I found out it was almost $50. So I got a keychain and a Christmas ornament representing Ravenclaw.

I wasn’t blown away by the Harry Potter exhibition. It was a little bit too crowded for my taste, and the magical games you play are kind of basic. We both definitely had a good time and certainly did not regret going. By the time you read this, there’s not that many days left to visit Harry Potter The Exhibition if you live near Atlanta, Georgia. I’m not sure what cities are going to be next, but I’m glad we heard about it and went.

    I think it sounds like a fun little experience for fans. You must go to the Harry Potter World in London though since you are both such big fans. Definitely worth the trip!
