Discover Your Story!

Summer 2020

Join Tracey the pencil dog and her crew on a fantastically immersive journey to create stories using art and science. Channel your creativity using animation basics such as storyboarding, sketching, stop-motion movie making, and more! 

Animationland transports visitors of all ages to a fantastical land with a quirky cast of characters where inspiration is everywhere!

The exhibit focuses on the basics of the animation process using interactive features including a sketching studio, a sound effects booth and the opportunity to plan and star in a stop-motion production.

 “Animationland is a vibrant, whimsical place where kids and adults can get lost in the creative process, even if they’ve never thought of themselves as artists,” said Catherine Diaz, exhibit business development manager at OMSI. “The exhibit provides visitors with the opportunity to experiment with animation, then walk away with the knowledge and skills to do it at home. It’s a DIY experience!"

Developed and produced by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI), Animationland offers a fully immersive, interactive exhibit where guests learn to incorporate animation skills into the creation process. This enables guests to understand the interplay that occurs between art and science and how they can apply those skills to tell their own stories in unique and dynamic ways.
