In addition to the fun Photo ops in Part 1 The Science Behind Pixar Exhibition gives you a look at the actual science behind the movies making process. The exhibit is around 12,000 sq. ft. and is currently at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. The exhibit features over 40 interactive exhibits that walk you through the film process at Pixar from sketch to screen.
Here is the Pixar Production Pipeline that shows each step in the process. The exhibit featured hands on displays from each part of this production pipeline.
The amount of time and work that goes into creating these movies is incredible.

A cool display in the exhibit was a recreation of the tree for a Bug’s Life where all the characters lived. They had cameras that allowed you to zoom in and get a Bug’s level point of view of the area.
And little pop up holes that allowed you to put yourself right at Bug’s level.
Here are a couple of cool Character models from the Modeling section of the exhibit.
Here some cool Buzz and Woody concept art.
Here are some examples of the hands on exhibits. The Sculpting exhibit features Dory and Marlin.
This Cars exhibit gave let you try out different looks for the art work on the hoods of the cars with a touch of a button.
The Simulation section was interesting and demonstrated how the simulation animators create motion that make the scenes truly come to life.
I would recommend this exhibit to fans of the Pixar films –especially if you have kids that like to learn and play around with hands on displays.
