Harry Potter: A History of Magic exhibit in NYC extends visiting hours on final days
 
The New-York Historical Society announced via the NY Times that the popular Harry Potter: A History of Magic will extend its visiting hours for the final days of the exhibit's opening this month.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Staying up until midnight to buy the latest &quot;Harry Potter&quot; became a ritual for a generation of young readers. Now, visitors to the New-York Historical Society can get a different kind of late-night Potter fix. <a href="https://t.co/kUP8N17ObD">https://t.co/kUP8N17ObD</a></p>&mdash; New York Times Arts (@nytimesarts) <a href="https://twitter.com/nytimesarts/status/1083836986195144710?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">January 11, 2019</a></blockquote>

The museum announced Friday that it will extend its hours during the final week of “Harry Potter: A History of Magic.” Beginning Jan. 21 and continuing through the exhibition’s final day (Jan. 27), the museum will be open until 7 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and until midnight Friday and Saturday. It will close at 6 p.m. on Thursday and 7 p.m. on Sunday.
The exhibition includes rare writings and notes from Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling on the seven-part saga, some of which has never been released before.
Capturing the traditions of folklore and magic at the heart of the Harry Potter stories, Harry Potter: A History of Magic unveils century-old treasures including rare books, manuscripts, and magical objects from the collections of the British Library and New-York Historical Society—with original material from Harry Potter publisher Scholastic and J.K. Rowling’s own archives. From medieval descriptions of dragons and griffins to the origins of the sorcerer’s stone, explore the subjects studied at Hogwarts and see original drafts and drawings by J.K. Rowling as well as Harry Potter illustrator Jim Kay.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the U.S. publication of J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, see cover artwork designed by illustrator Brian Selznick for the 20th anniversary edition of the Harry Potter series, published by Scholastic in June 2018. Plus, view Mary GrandPré’s illustrations created for Scholastic’s original editions of the novels—on display to the public for the first time—as well as costumes and set models from the award-winning play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

The exhibition is accompanied by a special audio tour featuring the voice of actress Natalie Dormer—available to ticketholders as a free Audible download—providing in-depth content on the objects on view.
