Museum of the little boy in glasses
• Museum of the little boy with glasses
Today I'll tell you, little children, a story about a little boy who was very fond of magic. He lived in a big castle, and everything seemed to him very interesting and exciting ...
Okay, okay, it was a joke. In fact, I'll tell you about Harry Potter museum, which is located on the outskirts of London. It is interesting that the postcode of the area is no longer in London, but physically it belongs to London. I myself am not a huge fan of Harry. Moreover, I watched only the first film about him and do not read books, but to visit the museum was quite interesting. Poetomubyli purchased tickets and plan a trip to this same museum.
Tickets can be purchased online only. Well, maybe you can on the spot, but the site says that at the box office tickets are not sold. Ticket looks like this:
As you can see, the ticket is valid on a certain date and time. So, to go from central London, this museum is quite far. Google gave a forecast for exactly one hour but I went half an hour because of the traffic. Three times missed turns, so if you go to the car, then be very careful and take the exit in advance. Pleased by the fact that you can be a little late. Already at the entrance to the museum very much the attitude: all are on duty, kindly point out where to go and where to park the car. At 4:00 there was no queue at all and I almost immediately took the ticket and immediately went inside. Inside already gathered a small group of people and we were let in.
It is worth noting that it was possible to rent an audio guide in which there are Russian, but the price tag off scale - £ 4.95, so I decided to do without it. In the first room a short film that was invented the idea of making a film.
There is nothing special, just a short video. In the next room is already showing a more detailed video, where the 3 main actors talk about their experiences. Unfortunately, it was forbidden to shoot in this room. After that we were taken to the next room.
Then a museum employee tried to even more interest us and after a short story opened the doors to the main hall.
In the main hall there is a table where the film students spent meal. On the walls hang beautiful fixtures.
Costumes actors. All items in the museum are real, that is, they have been used in films.
Some kind of magic table. Fans of the film is better to know what it is.
The next room is very large and in sections talks about how to create the scenery in the film, as the imposed make-up and how to make costumes.
Layout of the roof.
But the roof looked really, no computer graphics.
Cosmetic and makeup.
Gates to Hogwarts.
This male dormitory. Noteworthy is the fact that for 10 years, children have grown, and the beds were old sizes, and legs of adult children hanging from the bed, but it was not noticeable in the film.
This stove was brought from France and was used in the filming of the movie "Chocolate" with Johnny Depp.
Collection of magic wands.
And this is - a living Gryffindor.
I love all kinds of skull and could not resist this instance.
Various accessories from movies.

A collection of masks.
In this hall I ended and I went outside. There can be seen a few interesting things. The bus from the movies.
I understand what's relatives lived, Harry, who cared for him after his parents died.
masks exhibition was in the next room. Various goblins, wolves, dwarves and other creatures created in the amount of 125 person team.
Pretty, is not it?
It is the book that tried to bite the characters in the film.
One of the most complex mechanisms. All feathers are glued by hand.
Then came various street scenery. Pharmacy.
BUEEEEEE! Or BOAAAAA!
The next section is devoted to a sketch that drew so many to choose the best angle of the camera for shooting movies.
Model Hogwarts lock in an enlarged scale.
This museum is over and we get to the store, where they sell different stuff, ranging from sweets and chocolate, and to clothes, office and decoration.
Now I'm a little bit back to the beginning and show you how it looks like a museum and hall. By the way, the sky was very beautiful at this time.
So look cashier.

Parking is already empty, the museum today finished its work.
That's all. I tried to put more pictures than text. I really liked that the museum staff are very friendly and cheerful. Everyone is smiling and joking, it's very nice. Again, I'm not a fan of Harry series, but go to the museum was very interesting. Still, the film was shot almost 10 years and the tremendous amount of work has been done. All highly recommend!
