Until 6 September the Cité du Cinéma in Paris will be transformed as it plays host to that famous wizard Harry Potter.  Fans of the saga as much as beginners in witchcraft can enter the world of Hogwarts to admire costumes, objects and sets from the films.

Global exposure

Since 2009, the exhibition has gone around the world, and Harry Potter and his friends have visited Toronto, Tokyo and Chicago.
Paris is the latest city to host this now legendary exhibition.  Book your stay at the Chess Hotel Paris in the centre of the capital to enjoy east access to this thrilling event.

Harry Potter fans of all ages will discover a complete range of film sets and costumes from every part of the saga. Harry, Hermione and Ron have spent a few years at the Hogwarts school of sorcery now, and fans can see the costumes they wore in various sizes from the ages of 11 to 18.

La Cite du Cinema: an exceptional setting

The event takes place at La Cite du Cinema, a setting that combines movie studios with exhibition space.  The exhibition has been created to mirror the original Harry Potter sets. Take the opportunity to explore every part of Harry’s world from the classroom to the Quidditch pitch.
