BOSTON — The Museum of Science, Boston will extend its East Coast premiere run of “Harry Potter: The Exhibition” by one week, to Feb. 28.

The Museum of Science is the only New England location on the exhibit’s tour; its next location is the Ontario Science Center in Toronto.

In partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Exhibitgroup/Giltspur created the 10,000-square-foot exhibition to offer fans a firsthand look at more than 200 authentic artifacts displayed in settings inspired by the film sets — including the Great Hall, Hagrid’s hut and the Gryffindor common room.

Visitors will get to see the craftsmanship and artistry that went into creating the costumes and props for the beloved characters and iconic moments in the blockbuster film series.

To meet demand for tickets during February school vacation, the museum will also offer extended exhibit hours: Feb. 13-20, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Feb. 21-25, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Feb. 26, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Feb. 27-28, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Tickets for the exhibition can be purchased through the museum’s Web site, mos.org, or by calling (617) 723-2500, 617-589-0417. Combination admission into the museum and “Harry Potter: The Exhibition” is $26 for adults; $24 for seniors (60 and over); and $23 for children (ages 3-11).

Harry Potter’s wand, eyeglasses and the Marauder’s Map that was given to Harry by Fred and George Weasley in “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” are among the 200 authenic artifacts on display in the “Harry Potter: The Exhibition” at the Museum of Science, Boston.
