Gryffindor lives!

If you know what these are, you need to plan a trip to the museum.

Ever since Daniel Radcliffe went naked in "Equus," we haven't been able to look at Harry Potter in quite the same way. But we're pretty sure we'll fall in love with the young wizard's story all over again once "Harry Potter: The Exhibition" begins at the Museum of Science and Industry on Thursday.

The exhibit, which has caused quite a buzz since it was first announced, will include more than 200 authentic costumes and props from the Potter films, including Harry's original wand and eyeglasses, Gryffindor school uniforms and more, in settings like the Great Hall and Hagrid's hut. There will even be a few scary creatures here and there, but we promise, no gratuitous nudity.

You'll have to buy an additional ticket to get into the exhibition during museum hours (9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Sunday), combined admission will cost $26 for adults and $19 for children 3-11. If you dare to explore after dark, the exhibit will be open until 9 p.m. ($18 adults, $15 for kids).
