The Harry Potter: The Exhibition, according to the presenters is “the most comprehensive touring exhibition ever presented about the Wizarding World,” and will make its second stop on its North American tour here in Atlanta, Georgia.

It will open in the heart of downtown Atlanta on Friday, October 21, at 200 Peachtree Street

.
 
Tickets for Atlanta went on sale on Wednesday, September 28, but fans who are a part of the Harry Potter Fan Club received exclusive access to presale tickets on September 25. 
 
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.

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.
