London’s Harry Potter Museum Offers Behind-the-Scenes Peek

The Warner Brothers Studio Harry Potter Museum, located just outside of London, is a magical place where all of the real-life Harry Potter movie details can be explored and appreciated up close. Recently, Konstantin Shestakovsky took a trip to the museum, and was able to capture the magic and wonder of the movies in this collection of photographs.

A tour of the museum provides a behind-the-scenes look into the enchanting world of Harry Potter, and visitors can experience a first hand account of all of the authentic sets, props, costumes, and even animatronics from the films. Check out the Marauder's Map, Harry's wand, and the long dining tables to which fans have grown accustomed over the past decade of exciting cinema. The website says that the tour will “reveal some closely guarded secrets, including facts about the special effects and animatronics that made these films so hugely popular all over the world.”

As a bonus, if you decide to visit the London museum in the next few weeks (through January 6), you can expect to be greeted with much of the actual holiday decor that covered the Hogwarts' halls during every Christmas scene in the films.
