Harry Potter’s World: Renaissance Science, Magic, and Medicine
Daly House Museum, 122 Eighteenth Street, Brandon
to December 28 

The exhibit is constructed around six attractive banners from the United States National Library of Medicine augmented by Victorian artifacts from the Daly House collections.

This grand brick home, one of the oldest structures in Brandon, was built in 1882 for Thomas Mayne Daly. When Daly moved to British Columbia in 1896, he sold it to his law partner, George R. Coldwell. The house later served as a children’s shelter then, in 1976, it was taken over by a non-profit organization which renovated and reopened it as a museum. On the grounds of the museum is a plaque commemorating Daly, erected by the Historic Sites Advisory Board of Manitoba.
