Promising to take guests on "a tour of myth, magic and adventure," The Chronicles of Narnia: International Museum Exhibition will begin a five-year, three-continent tour of museums and learning institutions beginning in June. The exhibit, developed by the Becker Group in partnership with Disney and Walden Media, will launch on the heels of "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian's" movie premiere on May 16th and will continue touring through the release of "The Chronicles of Narnia: the Voyage of the Dawn Treader" in 2010.
Visitors will be able to explore interactive recreations of the sets and locations from the first two "Narnia" films including the attic and wardrobe, the White Witch's ice palace and Cair Paravel. The 10,000 square foot exhibit will also include a recreation of author C.S. Lewis's personal study.
Specific cities and venues have not officially been announced, but the Becker Group is currently in discussions with locations in Los Angeles, Boston, Phoenix, Chicago, New York, London and Sydney, among others.
Last year Disney and the Becker Group presented The Big Cheese Tour, a "Ratatouille" themed exhibition that included a 30-foot Eiffel Tower replica and a 25-foot cheese slide.
