If you think the Harry Potter films and books are a load of longwinded wizarding baloney, stop reading now.

Okay, everyone else, here’s your chance to immerse yourself in the film-ing world of Harry Potter, right here at your doorstep. Well, Seattle, anyhow. Come on, it’s better than Florida, yes? The not-so-imaginatively-named “Harry Potter: The Exhibition” is coming to the Pacific Science Center in Seattle, the only West Coast venue and the last stop on a U.S. tour that’s been wowing fans with all the props, sets and costumes you see in the Harry Potter films.

The show doesn’t open til Oct. 23, but it requires a time-entry ticket and PacSci is encouraging people to buy them well in advance. Tickets are on sale now.

So what’s in the show? Well, you’ll have to read my Sunday story on Oct. 24 to find out exactly, but here’s what the press release says:

“Guests will be able to experience dramatic displays inspired by the Harry Potter film sets and see the amazing craftsmanship behind authentic costumes and props from the films.”

There will be set-ups of the Gryffindor common room, Hagrid’s hut and the Great Hall, and more than 200 artifacts (including some from the final two films) in 10,000 square feet of space. Timed nicely with the show is the release of the seventh movie, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, part I” which will be shown at the PacSci Center in IMAX 3D when the film is released on Nov. 19.

“Harry Potter: The Exhibition” will run at the Pacific Science Center, 200 Second Ave. N, Seattle through January 30, 2011.

Tickets: $26 adults/$24 seniors and ages 6-15/$17 for ages 3-5 (includes general museum admission also.) 206-443-2001, www.pacificsciencecenter.org, www.harrypotterexhibition.org
