I’m rating five stars based mainly on the Harry Potter exhibit. Honestly, the rest is the museum seems to be geared toward kids and is a bit dated. But the institute seems to have innovating, interesting, fun rotating exhibits.
The Potter exhibition was well done. Lots of wardrobe pieces, interesting behind the scenes info, and cool, colorful scenes perfect for Instagram.
Though there isn’t a lot here a Potter fan wouldn’t know, I did find out a few cool facts, like how one of Voldermort’s robes ended up having over 160 feet of fabric. There were fun quotes and insights from crew and stars.
I did the VIP experience and went mid day on a weekday, but from what I hear, it can get crowded at peak times.
Again, I wouldn’t make this a special trip for the regular/permanent exhibits, but would check out the rotating exhibits regularly.
