PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Pixar animation studios, the company behind such hits as “Toy Story”, “The Incredible”, “Cars” is teaming up with the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh to create a new exhibit based on another one of their hit movies “Inside Out”.

The exhibit entitled “Emotions at Play with Pixar’s Inside Out” will debut at the museum September 26, 2020.

In a release, the museum says the exhibit, “will offer visitors interactive experiences that will help them recognize, understand and balance their emotions while on an extraordinary adventure of storytelling and imagination. This will be the first interactive exhibit based on the film.”

We’re so excited to work with Pixar Animation Studios to create this exhibit,” says Jane Werner, Executive Director of Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh. “Their history of making films that appeal to core truths about learning and growing dovetail wonderfully with the Children’s Museum’s experience in creating exhibits that help children explore big concepts in social-emotional learning, such as empathy, love and forgiveness.” 

"Our goal is to inspire visitors to understand more about their own imagination, memories, and emotions through the characters and world of our film Inside Out.” says Jonas Rivera, Producer, Inside Out. “Together with the team from the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh we’ve created interactive experiences where visitors will explore the inner workings of their own minds. What the museum has been able to do is truly impressive and we couldn’t be more excited to see how the ideas in our film have been translated into an incredibly fun and meaningful exhibit." 

After its world premiere in Pittsburgh, the exhibit will travel to other museums and libraries around the country beginning in 2021.

Concept photos of the exhibit will be released in the upcoming months.
