You Can Now Digitally Visit London's HARRY POTTER Exhibit

The words acquire a new meaning now for those of us who never got our Hogwarts letters, as the British Library exhibition titled 'Harry Potter: A History of Magic' is now on display on Google Arts and Culture.

The tech giant has announced that it is now offering a digitized version of the popular British Library's "Harry Potter: A History of Magic" exhibit in its educational web and mobile app.

If you're interested in "real magic", the online exhibit also features an in-depth look at potions, alchemy, astronomy, divination, magical creature care, charms, herbology, and even "Defense against the Dark Arts". Harry Potter: A History of Magic is available in English, Spanish, French, German, Hindi and Brazilian Portuguese, and more languages to be added soon.

The museum's virtual exhibits include The Amazing Journey, which chronicles Harry Potter as it transformed from a whimsical idea to a pop culture phenomenon, J.K. Rowling's early handwritten notes which include a sketch of Hogwarts and a list of Hippogriff names, a fantastical gallery of Jim Kay's portraits and sketches, and even a section of online exhibits sorted as they would have fit the Hogwarts curriculum. People will also get a chance to explore The Ripley Scroll, which describes how to make the fabled Philosopher's Stone. You will need it to access the Harry Potter exhibit of course, and you can explore so many other exhibits as well.

Suhair Khan, UK program manager for the Google site, said the collaboration had been planned before the exhibition opened last October.

"A History of Magic" launched in October at the British Library, marking the 20th anniversary of the United Kingdom publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
