The Museum of Harry Potter in London
- Country: England
- City: London
- Address: Leavesden, Watford
The world of magic and tales so you can call this unique Museum. Yes, actually it is not a Museum at all, but a colorful show, a journey in a fairy tale, the magical world of Harry Potter. As possible all this magic was made by the Creator, so loved by all of the Saga about Harry Potter, the Warner Bros., refitting one of their studios Leavesden Studios, which is located 30 miles from London in the town of Watford. Most recently, on March 31, 2012, this unique entertainment complex for the first time welcomed its first visitors, and his fame went throughout the world, making it the most popular Museum in England.
The main exhibit of the Museum – the magic school Hogwarts, or rather a 16-metre layout magic castle where she was at. But this size is enough to feel the magical country, the more it quickened the towers burning torches, and the striking lighting and visual effects create the illusion of day and night every 4 minutes.
The whole world was depicted in the movie, appears here in the form in which it was seen by fans of the film adaptation of this tale. Despite the fact that in professional language they are called decorations, where they are perceived as reality. And a large hall with tables laid for students at all 4 faculties of the school of magic – there is not enough only flying candles above the tables. And the office of Albus Dumbledore with a Griffin, an employee entrance to the office. And lounge Gryffindor, and a small hut of Hagrid. Here you can see the Hagrid, rather robotic and extremely natural on his head, worn high on the shoulders of the stunt double.
Separate expositions and shooting objects such as wax dolls, Harry Potter, Dobby, Albus Dumbledore, Victor Krum with shark head, model heads, mermaids, infernals, goblins, stuffed Mrs. Norris, Scabs fowkes and arugula. Here there are the wonderful items that are present in Saga – the magic books, including “the Monstrous book of monsters”, the suitcase Remus Lupin and the Golden egg tournament of wizards. Some magical things visitors can buy, for example, the textbook of magic, the broom, the cloak, and, of course, a magic wand. By the way, magic swords, and magic wand are exhibited here in a separate collection.
You can visit here also the home of the Weasley family, where magical utensil itself works – iron stroking himself, spokes themselves knit, and the pan washes itself. In this house you can see how all the magic stuff. It is clear that all the elements of robotics, but it’s all so fits in with the play of light, the surroundings and the atmosphere of magic that is sometimes lost doubts about the reality of all these “magical” items.
Do not forget about the magical kitchen. To services of visitors confectionery “candy Kingdom” where you can eat caramel bombs, to taste the sweet feathers, or go to the pub Three broomsticks and drink the famous butterbeer or pumpkin juice. And every excursion into the world of magic has become a holiday for children and adults alike.
