Hollywood Museum presents Harry Potter’s wizardry

Harry Potter’s legendary wizardry lives on at The Hollywood Museum, the official museum of Hollywood, located in the Historic Max Factor Building. The Museum’s new collection of sorcery includes acquisitions from the Harry Potter film franchise, considered among the highest-grossing films of all-time.

Spotlighted are new items from noted Harry Potter historian Christopher Knoll, President of Ovation Productions. The ultimate broom used by Harry Potter in the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001) and his quill and inkbottle used while at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry enhance the exhibit.

Potter’s wands are also part of the permanent procurement. A black wand box signed by Maggie Smith and a series of wand boxes with their coordinating wands are displayed, highlighted by Harry’s black handle instruction wand and Dumbledore’s purple handle wand, both in their ‘dragon skin’ boxes. Other items also on exhibit are Harry’s robe, costumes, signed blueprints of rooms at Hogwarts School, photos, posters, and more. In addition, Daniel Radcliffe’s tennis shoes are displayed, as well as Rupert Grint’s and Emma Watson’s shoes and the writing stylus’ used by all three when they were honored with foot and hand prints at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
