100 years ago, Walt Disney, a would-be cartoonist in Kansas City, Missouri, moved to Hollywood, California, to join his brother Roy. Walt was only 22 years old, but he was determined to become a filmmaker. Walt Disney was a pioneer and a driving force for innovation in the art of animation. That very same pioneering spirit and pursuit of excellence in art and storytelling remain the cornerstones of the studio that bears his name.

The exhibition Walt Disney Animation Studios: A Century of Stories commemorates the company's centenary. The exhibition takes us on a journey from the origins of the animation studio in 1923, when Walter Elias Disney produced his first animated short films - from which Mickey Mouse was born in 1927 - to 2023, the year of the release of the film Wish: The Power of Wishes.

The exhibition includes a series of reproductions of sketches, illustrations and audiovisuals from the most celebrated films of each decade, demonstrating a range of techniques, from traditional animation to the incorporation of technological advances such as inking, digital painting and deep canvas. It also features posters from all the animated films produced by the renowned studio.
