Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives Chicago Stay Extended Until August 3, 2014

Disney Formal Office

Hey Disney fans in the midwest, it’s time to make a trip to Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry. Due to popular demand the Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives exhibit has been extended. Guests will be able to enjoy the exhibit through August 3, 2014.

“This interactive exhibit has been so well-received by guests of all ages,” said Anne Rashford, director of temporary exhibits. “It tells the great story of the imagination and perseverance of Walt Disney and offers a rare peek into his life and the unforgettable entertainment he created. We are thrilled to be able to keep it at MSI for an additional three months.”

From Mickey Mouse to Mary Poppins 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. For more information and to buy tickets, visit msichicago.org.

I’d love for this to make its way down to Orlando for a stay. Where else should the exhibit travel?
