The successful exhibition, Harry Potter: The History of Magic that wowed people at the British Library in London, will be making its debut in the US.

The New-York Historical Society Museum and Library in Manhattan will run the exhibition from October 5, 2018 to January 27, 2019. Tickets for the event start going on sale in April, but if you are a member of the New-York Historical Society, you can reserve your tickets in advance starting February 14.

Harry Potter: The History of Magic marks the 20th anniversary of the US release of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was released in the UK in 1997)

Here is a video from the British Library and a description from the New-York Historical Society about the exhibition:

Capturing the traditions of folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter stories, Harry Potter: A History of Magic unveils rare books, manuscripts, and magical objects from the collections of the British Library, New-York Historical Society, U.S. Harry Potter-publisher Scholastic, and other special collections. Visitors can explore the subjects studied at Hogwarts and see original drafts and drawings by J.K. Rowling and Harry Potter illustrators Mary GrandPré and Jim Kay. Harry Potter: A History of Magic is currently on view at the British Library in London through February 28, 2018.”
