Franklin Institute’s Harry Potter Exhibition Expecting Tourism Magic

Kimberly Paynter
Harry Potter fans can play a virtual game to win tickets to Harry Potter: The Exhibition, at the Franklin Institute in February 2022, by scanning a QR code on a photo-op that will appear around the region in the months leading up to the opening of the exhibition.

The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia is gearing up for what might be its biggest show ever: Harry Potter. WHYY’s Peter Crimmins reports the immersive exhibit, based on the hit young adult novels and movies, will open in February.

WHYY’s arts and culture reporter Peter Crimmins first became interested in radio in the fourth grade, when he smuggled a contraband crystal-diode radio into the Boy Scout summer camp. Subsequent radio projects were more successful.
