‘Harry Potter’ at Night: Historical Society Extends Exhibition Hours

Staying up until midnight before Discharge day to grab copies of the latest “Harry Potter” book straight through the shipping box became hallowed tradition for a generation of young readers. currently, the brand new-York Historical Society can be offering a late-night Potter fix of a different kind.

The museum announced Friday in which the idea will extend its hours during the final week of “Harry Potter: A History of Magic.” Beginning Jan. 21 as well as continuing through the exhibition’s final day (Jan. 27), the museum will be open until 7 p.m. Monday through Wednesday as well as until midnight Friday as well as Saturday. the idea will close at 6 p.m. on Thursday as well as 7 p.m. on Sunday.

“Harry Potter: A History of Magic” has proved a blockbuster exhibition for the museum, which has devoted considerable resources to the idea through additional programming, such as trivia nights led by a costumed staff member — complete which has a cash bar as well as J.K. Rowling-inspired cocktails. (Those eager young midnight-Discharge Potter fans have long since turned 21, of course; some may take advantage of the extended hours to bring along children of their own.)

The exhibition unpacks Potter’s origins, looking at Rowling’s initial writing process however also at the history of magical myths in a broader sense through some of series’ cultural as well as scientific influences.
