BRUSSELS, June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Harry Potter™: The Exhibition, which will open at Palais 2 of Brussels Expo on June 30, 2016, is the must-see exhibition of the summer in Brussels, Belgium, with a record 75,000+ pre-sale tickets sold a month prior to opening. The exhibition will be open through September 11, 2016.
Larger than 1,400 square meters, the exhibition will offer Harry Potter fans in Belgium an immersive look into the famous wizarding world.
In partnership with Warner Bros.
