CHICAGO – The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago is extending a popular exhibit of Walt Disney archives.

Anne Rashford is director of temporary exhibits at the museum. In a statement Monday, she says the exhibit is being extended for three months. It is now scheduled to end Aug. 3.

The exhibition, titled "Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives," includes more than 300 artifacts from nine decades of Disney history. It features costumes, props and artwork from classic Disney animation, live-action films, theme parks and television shows.

Rashford says the exhibit offers a rare peek into Disney's life and "the unforgettable entertainment he created."

Attendees must purchase a separate ticket for the exhibit in addition to their museum admission.
