Cincinnati Museum Center Opens The Science Behind Pixar Exhibition

Now is your chance to experience the magic of your favorite Pixar movies and characters up close, thanks to a new exhibit from the Cincinnati Museum Center.

The museum plans to open “The Science Behind Pixar” on October 22nd. The interactive exhibition shows the “limitless limits” science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) have to offer to bring Pixar’s films to life.

It also offers visitors the chance to see popular Pixar characters face to face through scale models such as Buzz Lightyear, Dory, Mike Wazowski, Sulley, Edna Mode and Wall-E.

The exhibition includes eight interactive areas that show steps in the film making process: modeling, rigging, surfaces, sets and cameras, animation, simulation, lighting and rendering.

“The Science Behind Pixar shows how beautifully the components of STEM overlap to create quirky worlds and iconic characters that have shaped a generation,” said Elizabeth Pierce, President and CEO of the Cincinnati Museum Center, in a press release. “With interactive elements that make the complex concepts of digital animation accessible to different age groups, the exhibition will inspire the next generation of imaginary people to bring their own visions to life.”

Tickets for the opening of the exhibition in October are not yet available, but will be available soon, the museum said. Museum admission includes the Cincinnati History Museum and the Museum of Natural History and Science.

Tickets for adults are $ 14.50, seniors $ 13.50, and children 3 to 12 years old are $ 10.50. Adult members and children up to 2 years are free.
