The Mississippi Children’s Museum is celebrating Harry Potter Day this coming Saturday, July 29th from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

The museum said they are going to prepare children to go back to school Hogwarts style!

Children can start the day off by conducting a science experiment that will sort them into your Hogwarts house, then step inside the atrium to take a Back-to-School photo with our magical invisibility cloak.

“Every new Hogwarts student needs a wand before attending classes, so make sure to stop by Ollivander’s Wand shop where you will use the magic of circuitry to create a wand that really casts Lumos! We have several classes for you to try, including Herbology, where you will learn how to care for a plant that you can take home; Astronomy, where you will use our 3D pens to learn about the stars and planets; and Potions, where you will create your own slimy concoction. Each class gives you the opportunity to represent your House, with the House Cup winner announced on social media after the event ends.

Watch out – Voldemort has hidden his Horcruxes around the museum. If you are brave enough to find them all, you can choose a special Harry Potter-themed sticker to display for your service as an Auror. Before you leave the museum, make sure to stop by Flourish and Blotts, where each child will take home a book (while supplies last), courtesy of our MCM Partners.”

The Children’s Museum encourages children to wear costumes and said that all kids must be accompanied by an adult.

The cost for the event is $10 for general admission, unless you already have a museum membership then you can get in for free!
