A "Harry Potter" exhibition with displays inspired by film sets from the hit franchise, well as more than 200 costumes and props from the movies starring Daniel Radcliffe, opened in New York City on Tuesday, April 5.

The 14,000-square-foot exhibition features sets such as the Great Hall, where the students at Hogwart's Wizarding School of Witchcraft and Wizardry eat, the Forbidden Forest, Hagrid's hut, the Gryffindor common room where the teen wizard and his friends hang out.

"Harry Potter: The Exhibition" will run in New York through September 5 and then be produced abroad. It was previously put on in cities such as Chicago, Seattle and Boston.

Radcliffe, a British actor, is actually currently in New York City, starring in the Broadway musical "How To Make it in Show Business Without Really Trying." (See photos and a video of him performing.)

A full-fledged "Harry Potter" theme park opened at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida last year (see photos).

Tickets for "Harry Potter: The Exhibition" cost $25 for adult visitors. You can purchase them at discoverytsx.com.
