We had the pleasure of visiting Santa Ana’s famous Bowers Museum for a very special debut! The museum is now hosting Inside the Walt Disney Archives: 50 Years of Preserving the Magic! We got a special first look at the exhibition and we can’t wait to share this with you!

Guests visiting the exhibit are invited to walk the 10,000 square-foot area of the museum to view over 400 different artifacts. This specific traveling collection holds unique concept art, movie and television costumes, props, and even some of Walt’s personal effects.

This traveling exhibition will be at the Bowers museum from March 7th through August 30th of this year. Future cities will be announced at a later date. The museum will also be hosting special Disney themed events throughout the duration of the exhibit. These events will be hosted by different special guest speakers like Becky Cline, the director of the Walt Disney Archives, and many more! In addition to the exhibit and programs, Bowers will be hosting a special Tour & Tea Party in their garden! This must see exhibit is just a short trip from the Disneyland Resort and is well worth it!
