Narnia: The Exhibition – Now in Two Locations

A week ago Wednesday we reported the Exhibition for The Chronicles of Narnia would open in Montreal Canada. What we didn’t know at the time was three days after we reported that story a second Exhibition would open in Jacksonville, FL!

Yep, that’s right. On May 15, the Museam of Science and History (or MOSH as they like to call it) opened ‘Narnia:The Exhibition’ which will run the same time as the exhibition in Montreal.

The official MOSH website reports: “Step through the wardrobe and into the world of Narnia. The Chronicles
of Narnia: The Exhibition is a magical exhibit based on the blockbuster film series and fictional children’s classics by author C.S. Lewis. Hailed
as the near-perfect visitor experience, the exhibit combines original film costumes, set drawings and props from “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” and “Prince Caspian” with newly created educational interactives, videos and interviews with scientists so that visitors can consider the surprising similarity between our world and that of Narnia. This exhibition closes Sept 12 so plan to visit MOSH this summer!”

The current schedule for the Exhibition looks like this.

May 15, 2010 – Sept 12, 2010, The Museam of Science and History, Jacksonville, FL
June 5, 2010 – Aug 29, 2010, Montreal Exhibition Centre, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Oct 9, 2010 – ???, U.S. Space & Rocket Center, Huntsville, AL
June 2011, Louisville Science Center, Louisville, KY

    Jacksonville, FL. That's 5 hours from where I live. hhmm.

  3. Nathan says:

    Hey, I heard that the Voyage of the Dawn Treader movie trailer is going to be shown before the new Shrek 3D movie this weekend

  4. fantasia_kitty says:

    … and I heard it wasn't sooo…. I'll believe it when I see it. 😉

  5. So is it the same Exhibition, the same stuff?

  6. Matthias of Redwall says:

    wow, I'd like to go see that…sounds pretty interesting.
    anybody here like redwall? 🙂

  7. Omac the centaur says:

    awesome. 🙂

  8. Aslan's Meadow says:

    sooner or later their bound to come to michigan…..right?

  9. Starlily says:

    Florida is another place I don't live. 🙁

  10. Aravis Narnia says:

    Are they both exactly the same? I live a few hours away from Jax, but was planning on visiting Montreal anyway. Now it is a question on WHEN to go to Jax.

  11. Bummer, can't it come further south in Florida? Jacksonville is so far away… 🙁

  12. always narnian says:

    oooooooo =) i want to go one day

    I'm a Redwall fan too!

  14. Aslan's Meadow says:

    We can only hope.

  15. narniafan#1 says:

    KY is pretty close to me, so maybe next year…

  16. HighQueen_Of_LanternWaste says:

    Same for me. I will probably drive up during the summer.

  17. Nathan says:

    Yup, I just got back from the 10:30 showing of Shrek Forever After in 3D, and the Narnia Trailer preceded it. Everyone go watch it. I'm surprised they didn't put it online first.

  18. FriendOfNarnia2 says:

    Nathan, I don't think you're fooling anyone. If this was true we would have heard something about it by now.

  19. Anna's Sister says:

    Way to far north or way too far south. Why can't they have it in the Twin Cites. :b

  20. Lucy says:

    Nathan, are you lying? Please don't tease me-and everybody else on the site. Waving false hope in front of Narnia fans is like dangling crack in front of crack addicts and then saying, "Nope, none for you!"

    So if you're telling the truth, YOU ROCK. if not, you're making me sad.

  21. narnian1 says:

    Same thing I thought, further south would be so much better, but I am tempted to go the five hours north. 🙂

  22. Aslan's Meadow says:

    Nathan! are you for real or just pushn' us around? Tell us!!!

  23. And another question…I have a few pics of the Exhibition I took myself and I'm wondering if photography will still be forbidden. I mean, if there's two…

  24. Starlily says:

    I wouldn't believe anything until we get some solid proof.

  26. chirpingbird says:

    Isn't this the point where we all complain that the exhibit should come to near where we live?

  27. chirpingbird says:

    And Nathan, you wrote that at 10:24, when you said you watched the 10:30 viewing. No offense, of course, if what you say is true is true- but I doubt it very much.

  28. QueenLucy12 says:

    you don't want to be lying around us! cuz it is a BIG deal to some people!!! (like me!) Tell! true or not!?

  29. NarniaNerd says:


  30. As I have said before, I have not read anywhere that the trailer will be shown before the Shrek movie, but a week or so ago, Fox showed a clip from Shrek Forever After during a commercial break during Glee. If Shrek has any relations with the Fox Broadcasting Company, why shouldn't they have the same with the Fox "Movie-Making Company", and therefore, show the trailer before the Shrek movie? Just a theory! 🙂

  31. I went to that exhibit twice and it was great! You have to go as soon as you get the chance!

  32. You really should. Trust me…it's worth the drive!

  33. chirpingbird says:

    It almost makes me sad… it was like a tradition!

  34. narnian resident says:

    ok now im really getting annoyed. isnt Austin good enough for an expedition? i wanna see one sooooo bad! *weep* 🙁

  35. Keyaan says:

    I just came back from seeing the 7:20 pm showing of Shrek 4 in 3D…the Narnia trailer ISN'T attached to it.

  36. KingSkandartheJust says:

    very cool! I was hoping that they would put it somewhere a little closer to where I live in NY.

  37. HighQueenofNarnia says:

    America is so lucky! Especially on the East Coast. And, just a sidenote, I don't think that Alaska really counts as the West because it's far, far away above Canada! Although it is in the West.
    My mom's first response when I told her that the Exhibition was in Alaska: "What? It's in Alaska? Who's going to go see it there? I mean, there might be a few Narnia fans, but there are so many more in other places in the U.S. and the U.K. and around the world!" That was sort of a paraphrased version, but still. 🙂
    @ Nathan- It is totally uncool to lie about something like that- especially on a site like this. At first I was inclined to believe you, but now… I don't. Unless, for some reason, the showing you went to showed the trailer (which hasn't been released)…. but the other showings didn't…. but that makes absolutely no sense at all.

  38. HighQueenofNarnia says:

    NK! 🙂 (no kidding)

  39. Aslan's Meadow says:

    You're right HighQueenofNarnia. Unless "Nathan" replies to everyone, we can all give up on it. It was just some joke.

  40. Matthias of Redwall says:

    that's awesome!

  41. Nathan says:

    I made that comment at 12:24. Narniaweb doesn't go according to Eastern Standard Time, so it was recorded as being 10:24. After I made the comment I realized it looked funny. Why doesn't Narniaweb take time zones into account?

  42. Aslan's Meadow says:

    So you were just joking around about the VDT teaser trailer.

  43. Lucy says:

    So, Nathan,dude, were you telling the truth or weren't you?

  44. Omac the centaur says:

    haha that happened to me to. lol

  45. Tristan says:

    OMG I fucking live in Jax!!!!! im so happy! so happy….Last summer i when to the Harry Potter exhibition, now this summer im going to Narnia! live is good. SO HAPPY!

  46. narniaandthenorth says:

    get a life people, it a movie PREVIEW! wait until the movie or a actual preview

  47. Kajdron says:

    So let's make time zone check.
    It's now 10:49 UTC+2

  48. Kajdron says:

    They're showing the time in UTC-6.
    If Nathan is right about his time, he was posting in UTC-4.
    That's "Atlantic Standard Time", "Eastern Daylight Time"

    btw: is it given, that all cinemas will show the same trailers with the same movies?

  49. Hermitess of Narnia says:

    I'm sure it will, maybe by then it will have Dawn Treader props too!
    My question is, some of the things in the exhibit I assume are one of a kind like Tumnus' flute, the witch's sledge, or the items in Susan's trunk. I don't think they made doubles of all the props so does that mean the second exhibit won't contain everything?

  50. Duffleglum says:

    Hey, kinda random, but I just realized that THE TRAILER is coming out in only like 2 WEEKS!!

    Get ready to type "1st comment! This is awesome"!!!

  51. QueenLucy12 says:

    OMGHSH!!! I FORGOT! I will TRY to Be the first to commnent!!!!! 😀 😛 🙂 😉

  52. QueenLucy12 says:

    "comment" well anyway yall know what I said

  53. QueenLucy12 says:

    I bet!!!

  54. QueenLucy12 says:

    please dont say f***ing!

  55. Aslan's Meadow says:

    Tell me where you get one of these…."Lives"

  56. Braden Woodburn says:

    Ooo interesting! My aunt lives there!

  57. Kris says:

    I live in South Fl, 6 hours away from Jax, I was JUST in Jax last week and had NO idea! On our way home from Jax, we past a billboard for it and I could have DIED. My husband thought it was just the funniest thing ever of course. But its ok, it will be there until september so I will be able to go back. And I can't wait! And Tristan, lets keep the language clean, shall we? It just makes you look immature and well…not very smart, no offense just stating facts, and kids are on this site. That said, awesome that you live in Jax! Thats where I want to be more than anything (my whole family is there…and now Narnia is too!)
