Fans who wish to see Harry Potter: A History of Magic during it’s stay in New York will be able to reserve tickets as early as February 14th, according to Pottermore. However, that date is only for New-York Historical Members, if you’re not a member, you can reserve tickets once they go on sale for the general public in April.

Harry Potter: A History of Magic arrives in the US on 5 October and will run until 27 January 2019. The exhibition marks the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone in the United States by Scholastic.

The UK celebrated their publishing milestone last year, and the British Library accompanied the festivities with a packed exhibition focusing on the traditions of folklore and magic at the heart of the stories.

Their exhibition included everything from Jim Kay’s original artwork to ancient ‘magical’ manuscripts to notes written by J.K. Rowling. When the exhibit moves to New York it will be augmented with special items from the collections of both the New-York Historical Society and Scholastic, so don’t expect it to be identical…

New-York Historical Members can reserve advance tickets for the US exhibition beginning on 14 February at 12pm. Visit to learn more, and follow @nyhistory for the latest updates.
