He’s best known as Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter films.

But Matthew Lewis swapped Hogwarts for Leeds’s Thackray Medical Museum to view its new Magic of Medicine exhibition, which looks at the links between the history of magic and medicine.

Matthew said: “It was great being taken round the Thackray Museum’s Magic of Medicine exhibition. It’s one of my favourite museums and I was amazed by the children I met and how fascinated they were by the element of magic in medicine and healthcare. Thanks again to everybody at the Museum for organising such an excellent day.”

More information about the display can be found at the National Library of Medicine’s website www.nlm.nih.gov/exhibition/harrypottersworld/exhibition.html.

Both the Magic of Medicine exhibition and Harry Potter’s World run until the end of the year.
