Google Arts and Culture Harry Potter exhibit

Google’s free Arts & Culture app is now featuring an exhibit based on the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

In Harry Potter: A History of Magic, families can take a virtual tour through rare books, manuscripts and magical objects from the British Library’s collection that are at the heart of the Harry Potter franchise.

Some of the exhibit’s highlights include:

  • An interactive experience that lets you search for the Ripley Scroll, which contains the recipe to create the Philosopher’s Stone
  • A look at Harry Potter illustrator Jim Kay’s artwork
  • A ‘How to Study Like a Wizard’ section to learn about the history of Hogwarts classes, such as Defence Against the Dark Arts, Herbology and Potions
  • The origins of the Harry Potter franchise, featuring early notes and sketches from creator J.K. Rowling

A History of Magic can be viewed for free in the Google Arts & Culture app on Android and iOS or on the web.
