DreamWorks Animation: The Exhibition at ArtScience Museum, MBS

Kungfu Panda is one of my favourite cartoons of all time and it’s so amazing to explore the creative journey of a movie like that from a simple concept to an actual film in DreamWorks Animation: The Exhibition.

There’s so much to look at: models, concept drawings, storyboards, masks, maps, photographs, posters, paintings, and other original artwork. There are over 400 unique objects from the studio’s archive of rare and never before displayed material. The static display is accompanied by immersive and interactive digital experiences, and a wealth of additional digital content.

Anya and Adam enjoyed being able to manipulate a character’s expression on the computer and had a good time learning about animation by making flip books and thaumotropes. One of the highlights for them was Dragon Flight: A Dragon’s-Eye View of Berk. This 180-degree projection takes visitors on an exhilarating panoramic dragon ride on the back of Toothless, as the Isle of Berk builds around them.

So if you or your little ones enjoy DreamWorks Animation films such as Kungfu Panda, Shrek, Madagascar, or How to Train Your Dragon, you’ll love this exhibition. There are some special programmes and activities such as guided tours, workshops, and movie screenings on weekends so it will be a great time to visit.
