Ever wish you could take a Care of Magical Creatures class at Hogwarts?

While you may not have gotten an owl with your acceptance letter to the school of witchcraft and wizardry, you can still learn about all the fantastic beasts that were mentioned in the books and even seen in the movies.

And if you recall the Fantastic Beasts movies, a lot of new and old magical creatures finally had their time to shine on screen and fans have been fascinated with learning more about them.

In some exciting news, London’s Natural History Museum has partnered with Warner Bros. to put on a Fantastic Beasts exhibit, and one of the main specimens that is drawing attention if the horn of an Erumpent, a fictional beast created by author JK Rowling.

The new major exhibition will be held at the South Kensington institution this spring, where the extraordinary creatures of the Harry Potter universe will be used to teach about the “magical” animals that exist in the real world today. “We want to show people that the natural world is just as amazing as the mythical, wizarding world,” Clare Matterson, executive director of engagement at the NHM, told the BBC.

The exhibition will display 50 specimens from the museum’s collections next to props from the Potter movies, and interactive displays will compare and contrast different magical and real animals. Tickets for the exhibition, called Fantastic Beasts: The Wonder of Nature, will go on sale soon, and will run for seven months before going on tour internationally.
