Emotions at Play with Pixar’s Inside Out

Discovery Cube Los Angeles
Closes September 11

Emotions at Play with Pixar’s Inside Out, the first interactive exhibit based on the award-winning Disney and Pixar film, helps visitors – young and old – understand the important role emotions, memory and imagination play in our everyday lives. Focusing on the five core emotions featured in the film – Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust and Fear – hands-on and digital experiences in the exhibit offer opportunities to explore some of the ways we express our emotions – and recognize emotions in others, too.

  • Step into Headquarters to explore the range and intensity of emotions at the Control Panel.
  • Explore some of the ways we show how we feel with our faces and bodies at the Emotions Mirrors.
  • Think about an important memory and how it made you feel – or show how you are feeling right now by creating a glowing Memory Sphere.
  • Use your imagination to create a story and perform it at Dream Productions.
  • Work to keep the train on track – what feelings do you have when you control and balance the Train of Thought?
  • Explore how emotions work together as you stack and balance the Emotion Blocks.


This exhibition was developed by Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh in collaboration with Pixar Animation Studios.
