House of Minalima | Harry Potter Exhibition

If you've read my two blog posts on the Harry Potter Studio Tour (Tour and Merchandise) you will know that I'm a huge Harry Potter Fan! As I was in London with my mum to see Les Misérables a couple of weeks ago, we decided to visit the House of MinaLima.

Graphic Designers Miraphora Mina and Eduardo Lima are showing a collection of their graphic designs at this new exhibition, that's tucked away agh 26 Greek Street in London's West End. It's just around the corner from the Palace Theatre (where Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is shown), very fitting I think!

The brightly coloured House of MinaLima is a four-storey gallery featuring tons of their designs from artworks to props from the iconic Harry Potter films. The building is remarkably charming with its unusual shape, uneven and narrow staircase.

The first floor is a gift shop, where you are  able to purchase prints that can be seen in the exhibition, as well as tons of Harry Potter Stationary. A staircase with Hogwarts letters on then leads you up to the second floor.

The second floor is the most colourful floor and it houses wallpapers, posters, The Marauders Map as well as merchandise from Weasley's Wizard Wheezes.

The third floor shows off wizard books (such as 'Beedle the Bard' and 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them') and even has a fireplace with tons of Harry Potter's acceptance letters flying out! This had to be my favourite thing to see out of the whole exhibition!

Lasty, the top floor is dedicated the the magical newspaper: The Daily Prophet. The walls are plastered in it's articles; I really loved that you can see every tiny detail that makes up each and every newspaper.

Best of all, entry is free; you can just turn up on the day! The House of MinaLima is open daily from 12pm to 7pm until February 2017. Let me know if you've been and what you thought of what was on offer to view. Thanks for reading,

Let's keep in touch
