Enjoy a unique look into the Pixar process and explore the science and technology behind some of their most beloved animated films!

Created by the Museum of Science and Pixar, and featuring more than 40 interactive exhibit elements, The Science Behind Pixar demonstrates the technology that supports the creativity and artistry of Pixar’s storytellers.

The exhibition is broken into eight distinct sections, each focusing on a step of the filmmaking process – Modeling, Rigging, Surfaces, Sets & Cameras, Animation, Simulation, Lighting, and Rendering – providing visitors with a unique view of the production pipeline and concepts used at Pixar every day.

- Participate in fun, engaging hands-on activities
- Listen to firsthand accounts from members of the studios’ production teams
- Come face-to-face with re-creations of your favorite Pixar film characters

Visitors of all ages will engage in and learn about the filmmaking process through hands-on activities inspired by some of Pixar’s most treasured films, from the first-ever computer animated feature film Toy Story, which opened nearly two decades ago, to Pixar’s newest film Inside Out, releasing in June 2015.

**Entry to The Science Behind Pixar exhibition is included in Exhibit Halls admission but requires a timed ticket. When you purchase your Exhibit Halls ticket, you’ll be prompted in your shopping cart to add Pixar to your order. Please be sure to add your timed ticket during checkout.
