Disney Archives Featured in Chicago


A new exhibition featuring items from the Walt Disney archives opened at the Museum of Science and Industry Wednesday in Chicago, Ill.

“Treasures of the Walt Disney Archive,” which is put on by the Disney fan organization D23, will feature hands-on, interactive stations that bring Disney technological breakthroughs in animation and motion pictures to life.

Guests can try their luck in recording sound effects for a film, explore the wonders of Disney’s revolutionary MultiPlane film camera and even learn to draw some of their favorite Disney characters in the Animation Academy.

“‘Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives’ showcases the creativity and innovation that has defined Disney for 90 years,” says Robert A. Iger, chairman and chief executive officer, The Walt Disney Company. “We’re proud of this heritage, and we are very pleased to share this rare glimpse into our rich history with Chicago’s world-renowned Museum of Science and Industry.”
