Snape's Office is the third moment of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Chapter 5, The Whomping Willow.


Not daring even to look at each other, Harry and Ron followed Snape up the steps into the vast, echoing Entrance Hall, which was lit with flaming torches. A delicious smell of food was wafting from the Great Hall, but Snape led them away from the warmth and light, down a narrow stone staircase that led into the dungeons.

  • The 2 largest jars on the top left shelf, the 2nd-from-the-right jar on the middle left, the rightmost jar on the bottom left shelf, and the 2 largest jars on the bottom right shelf animate when moused over.


The only truly identifiable sound we hear is the sound of a fire crackling.
