On Saturday, November 21 the Rockingham Library, with a bus provided by the Windham Northeast Supervisory Union, will be taking a large group to the Museum of Science in Boston to see Harry Potter: The Exhibition. The bus will leave Bellows Falls at 8 a.m. and will return around 9 p.m.
To join the tour stop by the Youth Department at the Rockingham Library and register before November 12.
The cost is $23 for ages 11 and under, and $25 for ages 12 and up. Payment is required with registration - and bring additional money to purchase lunch. Tickets are very limited, early registration is recommended.
There will be chaperones available for those 12 and older who will be attending without a guardian (please ask for special youth registration).
At the Museum of Science you can journey to Hogwarts to explore filmmakers' challenges and innovations. The exhibition will feature more than 200 authentic props and costumes from the Harry Potter films, displayed in settings inspired by the film sets - including the Great Hall, Hagrid's Hut, and the Gryffindor common room.
You will be able to view film artifacts such as Harry's glasses, the Marauder's Map, and Hermione's Yule Ball gown. Kids will also be able to pull a screeching Mandrake from its pot and try their hand at tossing a Quaffle.
To enhance the trip the library will also be holding special programs throughout October and into November with special moving screenings and book groups.
