Wonderful news, Bostonian fans of psuedo-science! With Halloween just around the corner, Harry Potter: The Exhibition is coming to the Museum of Science on October 25th. It's the second museum worldwide to host the exhibet, which will include; "a first-hand view at more than 200 authentic artifacts displayed in settings inspired by the film sets — including the Great Hall, Hagrid's hut, the Gryffindor™ common room — and more."
