Harry Potter™: The Exhibition Atlanta Reviews:

“Harry Potter: The Exhibition fills a particular niche in the Harry Potter fan experience. Where the theme parks might offer interactive, true-to-world elements and a visit to the London studios offers a behind- the-scenes look, Harry Potter: The Exhibition is a unique and effective meld of the two.” – Atlanta News First

“One of the biggest and best-selling book and blockbuster movie franchises of our time has set up shop in Downtown Atlanta. It’s called Harry Potter: The Exhibition.” – WSB-TV

“My husband and I had a great time embracing all of the fun callbacks and designs, and it’s also fun to be around others who are pointing things out and delighting in these flourishes as well. Bottom line: I recommend it.” – Allison Keene, Paste Magazine

“If you love the franchise’s costumes, this is the place for you.” – Atlanta Magazine

“Visitors get to see themselves on the Marauder’s Map, see a first edition copy of the book version of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.” – Gwinnett Daily Post

“Harry Potter: The Exhibition in Atlanta, Georgia, is a breathtaking experience that will take you from one world to another.” – Muggle Net

“The replica set pieces are impressively accurate, including Harry Potter’s tiny cupboard quarters under the stairs before he joins Hogwarts, Hagrid’s huge chair and the telephone booth … that serves as the visitor’s entrance for the British Ministry of Magic Headquarters.” – The Atlanta Journal- Constitution
