Google Arts and Culture has recently launched a new experience that digitizes the British Library's 'Harry Potter: A History of Magic' and brings it to users through the mobile-and-web app. The digitized exhibit will give users the ability to take a 360-degree tour of the Divination room, JK Rowlings original Hogwarts' layout, inspirations for Herbology class and much more. The original version of this exhibit was shown in London and sold out extremely fast.

The Google Arts and Culture exhibit of 'Harry Potter: A History of Magic' is currently available in six languages -- English, Spanish, French, German, Hindi and Brazilian Portuguese -- with Google planning on adding support for more languages later. The online exhibit also brings in some elements not seen in the physical exhibit, such as exclusive images, interviews and articles. The exhibit also features real-life medieval manuscripts, precious printed books and Chinese oracle bones as an exploration of magic culture in history.
