Post New display photos from Harry Potter: The Exhibition (UPDATED)

Photos from the Harry Potter Exhibition have been published on the Museum of Science and Industry's website, including the interior of the Gryffindor Common Room, Hagrid's Hut and numerous costumes and set displays, which can be seen here:









Quote:
Along the way, fans will get an up-close and personal look at some of their favorite props and costumes from the Harry Potter films. Harry’s original wand and eyeglasses, elaborate outfits from the Yule Ball, and Gryffindor™ school uniforms are just some of the iconic items on display. They will also be able to take a tour through Hagrid’s hut, enter a Quidditch™ area to toss a “Quaffle,” and may even encounter a few creatures like Buckbeak™ or a giant Acromantula spider along the way.
Quote:
Gryffindor™ Common Room
In the Harry Potter films, we learn that Gryffindor is one of the four houses at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

Harry Potter and his best friends, Ron Weasley™ and Hermione Granger™, are all members of Gryffindor, the house known for bravery, daring, nerve and chivalry.

The Gryffindor common room can be found in one of Hogwarts castle’s towers – and its entrance is guarded by a painting of the Fat Lady. She will only allow entry upon being given the correct password, which changes frequently. You will have the opportunity to pass through the frame of the Fat Lady portrait and get a glimpse at costumes worn by famous Gryffindor students and the items that filled the common room and boys’ dormitory.

Hagrid’s Hut
Keeper of Keys and Grounds at Hogwarts, Rubeus Hagrid™ lives with his dog Fang in a hut on the edge of the Forbidden Forest.

Hagrid’s enormous presence and booming voice belie his soft heart, and he becomes a loyal friend to Harry, Ron and Hermione – who often drop into Hagrid’s hut for a visit (despite his questionable cooking skills).

As Hagrid is half-giant, all of the furniture and many of the other items in his home are over-sized. Harry Potter: The Exhibition gives you a chance to look inside Hagrid’s hut, sit in his giant chair and see what’s cooking… or hatching.
The exhibition will be open to the public on Thursday, April 30th. Tickets for the Chicago display can be bought here.

UPDATE: More information about the exhibition has been revealed:

Quote:
Muggles will be immediately immersed in Harry's world. The steaming Hogwarts Express marks the entrance, "so you feel like you've arrived at Hogwarts," one source said.
Quote:
Lord Voldemort shows up, as do magical creatures like a giant Acromantula spider. "I don't want to give too much away, but we have Buckbeak, one of my favorites," Exhibitgroup President Eddie Newquist said. The Hippogriff, a cross between an eagle and a horse, made his first appearance in "Prisoner of Azkaban." Harry's owl couldn't make it, "but we do have owl cages," Newquist said.
Quote:
During the show's run, the sixth of eight planned Potter movies -- "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" -- opens in theaters July 15. The exhibit will be updated with new props as films bow during the exhibit's five-year, 10-city international tour. But fans can get a sneak peek at Prof. Slughorn's (Jim Broadbent's) potion-master costume.
The article also states that there is no photography allowed while visiting the exhibition.

SnitchSeeker mod Vonnie will be attending a special preview of the exhibit.
