Visit the museum dressed as a favorite character or creature from the Harry Potter books and join hands-on activities themed from Harry’s world. Visit the Magical Creatures station to see and touch fascinating bones, skin, and claws that have been the inspiration for mythological animals. Stop by the cauldron at the Potter’s Potions table to learn about the plant and animal “ingredients” in Hogwarts potions and assemble a potion of your own. Explore Wizardly Wands to examine specimens of the trees that inspired wands from your favorite characters, including the sinister Elder Wand. Finally, don’t miss Life’s Secrets where you can uncover scientific secrets about the animals, plants, and minerals sought out in the quest for eternal life.
