The Walt Disney Archives is readying the European version of “Disney100: The Exhibition” to open in Munich, Germany, and have offered a sneak peek of some of the Disney artifacts that will be part of the exhibition.
The largest exhibition the Walt Disney Archives has ever created begins its European tour in Munich’s small Olympic Hall on April 18, 2023, to mark the 100th anniversary of The Walt Disney Company.
“Disney100: The Exhibition” invites fans to immerse themselves in their favorite Disney stories in 10 imaginatively themed galleries full of innovative technology.
It took four years to plan and assemble the artifacts for the “Disney100: The Exhibition” tours, many of which will be on display for fans and Disney lovers for the first time.
“At the Walt Disney Archives, we work to protect and preserve Disney’s rich legacy—and to make it accessible to the public,” says Becky Cline, Director, Walt Disney Archives, in a press release. “We cannot wait for fans and families to experience this once-in-a-lifetime event celebrating the iconic characters and stories that have captured the hearts of audiences around the globe.”
The exhibition will be in Munich until September 3, 2023, after which it will move to London, England. Tickets for Munich start at €24.90 and VIP Packages begin at €34.90.
There are also tickets still available for the D23 Gold Member event on April 17 to kick off the Munich run of “Disney100: The Exhibition.”
This version of “Disney100: The Exhibition” will feature European-exclusive items throughout the exhibit.
In the gallery “Where Do the Stories Come From?,” visitors can see the Mary Poppins carousel horse ridden by Disney Legend Dick Van Dyke as Bert in 1965, and the Dutch Language prop book from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937).
Here are some of the other items The Walt Disney Archives will be bringing to Europe:
North American Tour
“Disney100: The Exhibition” debuted in February at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia, featuring over 250 Disney artifacts, and it will be there before moving on to its next stop (which I’ve heard will be Chicago).
We covered the exhibit’s North American opening, and we also have the TV special put together by the Philadelphia ABC affiliate called, “Disney100: The Exhibition – Making the Magic.”
