Frequently Asked Questions for
Why are there two Hogwarts Express events? Are they the same?
CAM Nepal has designated two shifts for Hogwarts Express 2017 -- for younger fans and for older fans. From 11am-3pm Potterheads below 13 years of age can enjoy the event with their parents during daylight hours. From 4-8pm, Hogwarts Express's evening shift is geared towards older fans who want to come by themselves or with friends.
The essential activities on both session are very similar but differ slightly in difficulty to account for the age difference.

As we are a Children's Art Museum, a 'class' is an opportunity for you to create a piece of art with your own hands.
