Harry Potter at the Met

HPMet logo

Harry Potter at the Met was an innovative museum tour project researched, designed, and led by Emily Turner. The hour and a half tour explored the Met's world-renowned collection through the lens of Harry Potter by uncovering the mythology and folklore that inspired the Harry Potter universe. Trivia, dueling, and a touch of theatre made the tour an interactive experience for fans of all ages.
