Disney 100: The Exhibition
[Philadelphia, PA] The Walt Disney Company turns 100 in 2023, and the whole world will celebrate a legacy of stories, characters and imagination—but only Philadelphia’s Franklin Institute will house the official “Disney 100: The Exhibition.”
Created for the 100-year celebration of The Walt Disney Company, the world premiere exhibition will immerse guests in the beloved stories that have been dazzling fans since 1923.
The Walt Disney Archives is opening its vault of treasures, showcasing more than 250 of its ‘crown jewels,’ rarely seen original artworks and artifacts, costumes and props, and other memorabilia.
Exclusively for this exhibition, Disney has curated special behind-the-scenes glimpses into the creation of the company’s most popular characters, films, shows, and attractions — from Disneyland to Walt Disney World and beyond.
Plus, ten imaginatively themed galleries—all featuring moving stories, interactive installations, and background information—will take visitors on a journey through one hundred years of The Walt Disney Company.
Celebrate the classics from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” to “Strange World,” as well as the latest members of the Disney family — Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, and National Geographic.
“Disney 100: The Exhibition” will be on view at The Franklin Institute in Philadelphia Feb. 18 to Aug. 27, 2023.
For this special exhibition, the Franklin Institute is smashing the “museums close at 5 p.m.” nonsense. On Thursdays, Friday and Saturdays, the Institute will be open from 5-8 p.m., for which we nighttime advocates are grateful.
