You Can Now Digitally Visit London’s HARRY POTTER Exhibit

Did you miss your opportunity to see the Harry Potter exhibition at the British Library last year? If so, you’re not alone. “Harry Potter: A History of Magic” allowed fans  to see rare books, manuscripts, and other objects that explored folklore and magic beyond the Wizarding World of J.K. Rowling. The exhibition sold out quickly, but your second chance has arrived. Google and the British Library have teamed up for an online walkthrough of a few of the exhibit’s most popular items. As part of the announcement, Google Arts & Culture released a video with the exhibit’s curator, Julian Anderson, which also offered a few fun lessons in “Muggle magic.”

Via i09, Google’s online curation of the Harry Potter exhibit can be found here. Unfortunately, it doesn’t feature everything that was a part of the original exhibit, but it does have several items of note. That includes the early drafts of Rowling’s outline for the novels and her original sketches for the grounds of Hogwarts, as well as a 360-degree tour of the Divination Room. There’s even a detailed look at the Ripley Scroll, a manuscript from the 15th century that was supposed to reveal the secret technique for creating a philosopher’s stone.

If you’re interested in “real magic,” the online exhibit also features an in-depth look at potions, alchemy, astronomy, divination, magical creature care, charms, herbology, and even “Defense against the Dark Arts.” It may be the next best thing to an actual Hogwarts education!
