Fuck objectivity, the Harry Potter Exhibition at the Boston Science Museum was AMAZING!
The exhibition included loads of props, costumes, sculptures of CG characters (Doby, Kreacher, Buckbeak, etc.), and it's all set in Harry Potter type rooms.
When you first enter, a young lady gives you a brief rundown of what you're gonna see in the exhibit, and then... SHE SORTS PEOPLE FROM THE AUDIENCE.
I was fortunate enough to be chosen to be sorted by the Sorting Hat. Unfortunately, I don't know if it did much thinking for itself, because the lady asked me if I like any house in particular, and I said Slytherin. Low and behold, I was sorted into Slytherin house.
Side-note: Slytherin get's a real bad rap because of a few bad apples like Tom Riddle, the Malfoys, and Belatrix Lestrange. But let's not forget it has also produced Severus Snape, in my opinion the REAL hero of the Harry Potter novels, and Horace Slughorn who, while a bit snobby, is a good guy. I also find it very hard to believe that EVERY SINGLE Sytherin fought on the side of Voldemort in the battle of Hogwarts.
Anywho, the exhibit itself is really, really great. I suggest getting the audio tour because the producer of the films gives some great insight, and the costume, make up, and set designers also give some pretty cool info. For instance, they chose to take the nose off of Voldermort because they decided with the nose, he was too human, and they wanted him to look human, but at the same time dehumanize him.
Other cool exhibits include character's costume choices (you'll be amazed at how small Emma Watson is), the Tri-Wizard's Ball costumes, a HUGE collection of the Wizarding World's candy, artifacts from Hagrid's hut, and a great deal of models the actors used to train themselves for working with CG characters.
If you are a New England Nerdfighter or you find yourself in Boston one of these days, I HIGHLY recommend taking the train over to the Museum of Science and checking out the Harry Potter Exhibit.
