The McNay Art Museum just announced a new exhibit called 'Dreamland' which is showing off the work of the Tim Burton classic "The Nightmare Before Christmas'. Since the film is celebrating it's 30th anniversary this year, this will make it a must go for super fans.
When Does the Exhibit Open?
It's actually open starting tomorrow (August 17th). The good news is you have SEVERAL months to go check it out. It will officially leave the McNay Art Museum on January 14th, 2024. The age old debate, is it a Christmas movie or Halloween movie. Doesn't matter because the exhibit will be open for both holidays.
Where is the McNay Art Museum Located?
6000 North New Braunfels Avenue in San Antonio, Texas. The museum is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Wednesday 10am - 6pm, Thursday 10am - 9pm, Friday 10am - 6pm, Saturday 10am - 5pm, and Sunday 12pm - 5pm. I would for sure double check before going if you're visiting on a holiday weekend.
What's in the Exhibit?
As you may know, the movie is not a cartoon. It's actual sculptures that they designed and painstakingly moved, frame by frame, to create motion. The actual sculptures and sets designed for the film will be shown off in this exhibit. Original models of beloved Burton characters like Oogie Boogie Exposed, Bone Crusher and Jack Skellington will be spotlighted at the exhibition, according to a press release.
