About

Take your imagination to infinity… and beyond! Since Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story debuted in 1995, generations have grown up with the studio’s films and characters. Now discover the science that brings them to life. The interactive exhibition showcases the boundless limits of STEM, imagination and curiosity, thrilling you as you come face-to-face with popular characters, including Buzz Lightyear, Dory, Mike and Sulley, Edna Mode and WALL•E.

Through eight interactive areas, this exhibit shines a light on the filmmaking process – modeling, rigging, surfaces, sets and cameras, animation, simulation, lighting and rendering. The exhibition delivers an unparalleled view of the production pipeline used by Pixar’s artists and computer scientists, featuring more than 50 interactive elements, including:

  • Discover how camera placement and angles created a bug’s-eye view in A Bug’s Life
  • Create a digital sculpture from an artist’s sketch
  • Use lights to solve challenges similar to ones faced by Pixar in creating underwater scenes in Finding Nemo
  • See how models are given a virtual skeleton that enables animators to pose them
  • Build a robot inspired by those in WALL•E
  • Try your hand at stop-motion animation of a jumping lamp and watch a short film of what you produced
  • See and touch scale models of many of Pixar’s beloved characters.
