Look where we found the magic!  At the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago at a special exhibit that celebrates the magic of Disney imagination, creativity, and entertainment.  With film clips that feature the early life of Walt Disney, props from films, and costumes worn by fan favorites, Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives is a must see for kids of all ages.

This special exhibit is at the Museum of Science and Industry through May 4, 2014.














Frank Thomas’ animation studio desk…where the magic happened! 














Jiminy Cricket in the collection of Disney maquettes. 




















Costumes from the “Jolly Holiday” scene in Mary Poppins




















Costume worn by Amy Adams in Enchanted














One of two desks used by Walt Disney at Disney Studios in California. 




















Elaborate book prop from the opening scene of Sleeping Beauty.
















Do you remember what movie this jack-in-the-box prop is from?

    I think the jack-in-the-box is from the nursery scene in Mary Poppins…I didn’t read the label at the exhibit, but it was with some of the other props from the film.
