You can now explore a magical ‘Harry Potter’ exhibit on Google Arts & Culture app

Google is bringing a world of magic artefacts into the digital space.

Last year, the British Library opened their exhibition Harry Potter: A History of Magic. We went to check it out back in October and we left bitterly disappointed that magic really truly doesn’t exist — but the exhibition itself was fantastic. 

The physical exhibition is due to close February 28, but in partnership with Google Arts & Culture, the British Library has now made it accessible online. Ten original exhibits in six languages — English, Spanish, French, German, Hindi and Brazilian Portuguese — are now available to peruse using the dark magic that is Google.

The online exhibit is absolutely teeming with images, interviews, and articles. It also features a few interactive touches — you can examine the length of the Ripley Scroll, a 6-metre-long 16th century document that contains the recipe for the philosopher’s stone. 

Okay seems like a simple enough recipe…

Among the artefacts through which you can scour are some from the master herself. J.K. Rowling’s original pitch letter and a preliminary sketch she did of the Hogwarts grounds are both available.

A gentle reminder that a bunch of publishers rejected this.

The giant squid is a nice touch.

You can also explore the exhibition by Hogwarts subject, delving into potions or care of magical creatures as you see fit.

So get cracking on those magic classes, muggles! There’s literally no excuse not to now that it’s on Google.
