Pandora on Earth: Avatar Museum Exhibit Coming June 2011

Avatarexhibit AVATAR may be coming soon to a museum near you! An exhibit of memorabilia from the movie is starting out at Seattle’s Experience Music Project|Science Fiction Museum on June 4, 2011 and will run through Sept 2012. “In addition to nearly 50 props, costumes, models and such from the film, the museum is offering several interactive displays that allow visitors to explore the technical elements that went into making the CGI-heavy film,” reported Seattlest earlier this month. There will be more than 50 artifacts from the film, including an Armored Mobility Platform (AMP) suite says Jaunted. The show is organized in association with 20th Century Fox and director James Cameron’s production company Lightstorm Entertainment. It will also have an interactive feature on how the movie was created including green screens and the revolutionary and innovative cameras used for the movie reports Nerd Society. Also in the exhibity: exclusive AVATAR concept drawings and art used to help designers create Pandora.

James Cameron wants it to be an enlightening experience and explains how it’s an explorative ride through Pandora’s creation and culture and its groundbreaking technology:

“The exhibition is going to be a unique opportunity for people to learn more not only about how the film was made, but also experience Pandora in a much deeper way. Fans will be able to see in-person the workmanship behind the film, whether it’s how scenes are captured; or how a Na’vi costume was built first as a real world garment then produced digitally. It’ll create a tactical reality that’ll be a good companion to having seen the movie.”

MuseumexhibitWhen you're done checking out Neytiri's 9-foot bow and Na'vi costumes, you can go play with the technology, some of created especially for the film.” The Seattle Times reports that the exhibit has been in the works for over a year. “Now, I don't know if I would actually pay money to fly to the West Coast unless James Cameron is personally giving me a lesson on how to fly Toruk Makto,” writes Techland—but luckily the exhibit won’t be limited to Seattle. It will stay at the Science Fiction Museum through September 3, 2012, and will then travel to other cities—stay tuned.

Cameron, now at work on two more "Avatar" movies (to be in theaters in 2014 and 2015), says he's reserved the right to "pull back" anything needed for the sequels.
