Gulf Coast Exploreum


The Gulf Coast Exploreum has a new fall exhibit, The Animation Academy, open now through January 1, 2019. The Animation Academy explores the unique world of animation, from traditional hand-drawn cels to exciting breakthroughs in stop-motion and CGI. Visitors can create their own stop-motion animated short, learn about the art of storyboarding, go behind the scenes with artists and animators, and enjoy America’s largest 3D zoetrope.

Each display and interactive activity features the participation of industry leaders, from original hand-drawn cels to real stop-motion maquettes, photo ops, interactive displays, work stations, weekend workshops, and much more!
