Harry Potter at The Franklin Institute Download

00:29 Download March 8th

Larry Dubinski, President & CEO of The Franklin Institute, returns to discuss the institute’s new blockbuster exhibition, Harry Potter and the Wizarding World, The Exhibition, a celebration of the artistry and craftsmanship behind the blockbuster films; the places, characters and creatures found in the Potter universe.  In this world premiere exhibit best-in-class immersive design and technology will allow visitors to experience the mysteries of Hogwarts™ castle, Gringotts™ and the Ministry of Magic, with creatures found in the series’ films and the Fantasist Beasts.

Larry promises visitors will get an exclusive, up-close look at authentic props and original costumes from the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films in the most comprehensive touring exhibition ever presented about the Wizarding World.   He explains the importance of these blockbuster exhibits, they draw people, visitors who will not only stay to see and enjoy the rest of the venerable institution, but also reserve hotel rooms, dine in local restaurants and shop, but also visit other cultural venues in Philadelphia.

We discussed the importance of door traffic to our museums, tickets are a major source of revenue in a city and state that does not financially support these institutions.  ‘Harry’ has already proved to be the most anticipated and purchased exhibit since Tut.

We also discussed new features for adults, The Franklin Institute has new podcasts and videos at their new digital portal, beyond.fi.edu , a twelve episode bioscience-themed podcast series, “So Curious!” and an 8 episode new astronomy-themed video series “A Practical Guide to the Cosmos.”   Both available where you catch your podcasts and videos with subscribers receiving bonus content.

Look for the next installment of Science After Hours, a quarterly evening event series exclusively for the 21and up that offers grown-ups opportunities to explore The Franklin Institute’s hands-on exhibit spaces, with live performances, surprising challenges and a cash bar!
