The McNay Museum Invites You to Peer Behind the Curtain of a Classic Film

See all your favorite characters from The Nightmare Before Christmas up close and personal at the McNay Art Museum! This special showcase of the original figures and sets from the film return to the McNay in this immersive installation.

The product of Tim Burton’s B-movie–steeped imagination, The Nightmare Before Christmas is a tour de force of stop-action animation that has become a cult favorite for generations.
Discover how camera crews and sculptures brought Tim Burton’s imagination to life, who originally sketched the film when he was an alienated teenager living in the shadow of Disney Studios. It’s a fascinating look at the painstaking process of this labor of love, and will give you a newfound respect for the innovative children’s masterpiece!
