EVENT OF THE MONTH

OMSI NOW HAS A PIXAR EXHIBIT

What happens before an animated film reaches the big screen? The Science Behind Pixar is your chance to experience the science, technology, engineering, art, and math concepts used by artists and computer scientists who help bring Pixar’s award-winning films to the big screen. A great way to spend a few hours with your family. My favorite part was watching the short videos that provide behind the scenes on what goes into some of my favorite films. Check it out today!
