Santa Ana’s Bowers Museum Brings New Disney Exhibit

For over eight decades, the Bowers Museum has been growing and adapting to the times in order to captivate audiences through the years. As a nod to its earlier days, the museum still includes collections, programs and exhibitions celebrating the history of Orange County. However, that is just the tip of the iceberg.

Coming to Bowers March 7, 2020, the exhibition “Inside the Walt Disney Archives: 50 Years of Preserving the Magic” will be on showcase until August 30, 2020. This exhibition kicks off a celebration for the Walt Disney Archives’ 50th anniversary. Visitors will see more than 400 objects including original art work, costumes and props. To ensure all visitors enjoy their experience and get ample time to take in the exhibit, tickets will be given with timed entry. Visitors are advised to arrive at least 30 minutes early to check in at the admissions desk and receive their admission sticker.

There is so much to see and do at the Bowers Museum—why not make a day out of it? Stay for Pacific Rim-inspired cuisine at the modern Tangata Restaurant. Enjoy the modern main dining area or go alfresco in the mission-style courtyard. Reservations are recommended.
