The Tim Burton Exhibit at the MOMA

For any Tim Burton fan, the current special exhibition on display at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC is a MUST see.

Once you step through the entrance you are immersed into Tim Burton’s world.  Inside you will see actual models of his creations, sketches of the characters and stories as they were visualized before they made it to the big screen, hand written poetry and notes, and even some actual props and costumes from his movies.

As a huge fan, I was in awe to be surrounded by so many amazing pieces.  While the exhibit was crowded, I was still able to see everything thoroughly.  It was a thrill to see everything in such detail, for example, there is a handwritten note to Johhny Depp about a line Tim thought would work in Willy Wonka (this line did end up being in the film).  I loved it so much I just might return for another look before this exhibition ends on April 26, 2010.

MoMA is recommending that you order a ticket for a specific time of admission for this exhibit on their website when you purchase your museum admission.  This can all be done online before you go and the entrance to the Tim Burton exhibit is included in your museum admission cost.   It is worth every penny!
