Warner Bros.

The world premiere of Harry Potter: The Exhibition opened this past February at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, PA, where it was seen by hundreds of thousands of fans – ranking as one of the most visited exhibitions in the history of the museum. In addition to Atlanta, the exhibition will continue to tour globally, extending into more cities in Latin America, Asia, and Europe, including the recently announced stop in Vienna, Austria in December 2022.
“Building on the tremendous success in Philadelphia, we are so excited to bring Harry Potter: The Exhibition to the city of Atlanta, the world headquarters of Imagine Exhibitions, and my hometown,” said Tom Zaller, President and CEO of Imagine Exhibitions. “We create experiences all over the world and it’s nice to show our city what we do.”
Michael Cohl, the Chairman of EMC Presents, said: “We at EMC are thrilled to be a part of this incredible immersive exhibition and we’re excited that we can bring the show to more visitors in more locations around the world. I personally can’t wait to bring my kids and grandkids to see all the original props and costumes and experience the interactive features in the exhibition.”
“We are delighted to welcome a family-friendly exhibition to Atlanta that contributes to our diverse portfolio of offerings,” said William Pate, president and CEO, Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau. “We look forward to Harry Potter: The Exhibition captivating visitors through a comprehensive immersive experience.”
The behind-the-scenes exhibition uses the latest innovations in immersive design and technology. It celebrates the films and stories of Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts, and the expanding Wizarding World, including Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, through beautifully crafted environments that honor the iconic moments, characters, settings, and beasts, created by J.K. Rowling and as seen in the films and stories. Visitors will get an up-close look at authentic props and original costumes from Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films and will have the opportunity to engage with innovative, awe-inspiring, and magical environments and installations in ways never before experienced in a touring exhibition.
