The Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago is extending the run of Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives, presented by D23: The Official Disney Fan Club. Thanks to the exhibit’s popularity, guests will be able to enjoy the exhibit through January 4, 2015.
Guests of all ages have enjoyed revisiting their favorite Disney moments in this exhibit,” said Anne Rashford, director of special exhibits. “They learn about Walt’s inspirational journey to create the company behind so many movies, television shows and theme parks that bear the Disney name. We are thrilled to be able to keep the exhibit here at MSI through the holiday season.”
From Mickey Mouse to Captain Jack Sparrow, the exhibition features more than 300 artifacts from nine decades of Disney’s rich history—including props; costumes; memorabilia; and artwork from classic Disney animation, theme park attractions, television shows and live-action films. Hands-on activities allow kids and adults alike to explore animation technology from all 53 Disney animated films and learn to draw one of their favorite characters in the Animation Academy.
The exhibit is not included in Museum Entry but can be added to an Explorer ticket package. D23 Gold and Silver Members will receive a special discount on exhibit entry.
