Touring exhibitions from The Museum of  Movie Magic

TouringExhibition.co.uk is the home base of The Museum of Movie Magic. We have curated a range of amazing, accessible pop culture-themed exhibition titles, with mass appeal to family audiences looking for a great day out. Our exhibitions can tour anywhere in the UK or overseas.

Our incredible range of exhibitions-for-hire feature exceptional iconic objects drawn from our vast private collection of movie props and costumes. The exhibitions can sit at the heart of a range of themed narratives, from science to contemporary cultural heritage. With objects representing diverse academic, cultural, art and design disciplines, these spectacular collections highlight the central role that props and costumes play in cinema storytelling.

Our exhibitions have been designed to easily tie in with educational themes, as an attractor for an existing collection or as a spectacular, stand-alone exhibition.

Everything you need for an outstanding, educational, engaging and successful temporary exhibition is included within our low-cost exhibition hire package. The loan package includes:

Our portfolio of  touring exhibition for hire includes:

All our touring exhibitions include museum labels and information panels. The display units are easily installed and are adaptable to fit any size and type of venue or public space, from museums to shopping malls. We also offer a full design and install service where required.

Our curated collection of iconic movie costumes and props can tour anywhere in the UK and around the world. Large and enthusiastic audiences have visited our exhibitions at museums and galleries from Edinburgh, Scotland to Warrnambool, Australia, experiencing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to connect to unforgettable and beloved characters. The exhibitions engage and inspire audiences and offer significant benefits in terms of visitor numbers, income and ongoing interest for the venues and organisations hosting them.

Our exhibitions boost numbers and income for galleries and museums as well as the broader local economy. The beachside town of Warrnambool received an injection of over a million dollars when people came from far and wide to see, first-hand, a collection of props and costumes from their favourite Science Fiction movies.

If you have a gallery, museum or event in need of a dramatic splash, we have exciting, amazing and educational collections for you to augment and underpin your existing activities.

ALIEN INVASION

Face to face and out of this world!

How thrilling would it be to come face-to-face with an alien – or the Alien? Visitors can discover just how thrilled when they attend the remarkable Invasion touring exhibition.

Invasion brings famous aliens, monsters, props and costumes from the Sci-Fi blockbusters together in a collection guaranteed to scare – and thrill.

On show is the creature from Alien, together with the iconic sleep chamber from that same movie (don’t worry, the cat’s long gone). Co-star Sigourney Weaver isn’t here, but we have the unlovely yet popular Mutado from Babylon 5, and full size Martians from Mars Attacks. We have some cute aliens too. Jim Henson’s Bobut will be there from the American Sci-Fi fantasy adventure Aliens in the Family.

The costume department includes exhibits from Planet of the Apes, Star Trek: Enterprise, Andromeda, Stargate Atlantis, Red Dwarf, The Chronicles of Riddick and star attraction, Mat Le Blanc’s spacesuit from Lost In Space, along with a the massive transporter spaceship model from that film’s spectacular opening scene.

Thousands have come to be enthralled – and perhaps a little frightened – by this exhibition wherever it’s been. When it came to Torquay Museum, the Museum exceeded its annual visitor target in just ten weeks.

Invasion a Monster Hit at Torquay Museum

A monster hit at Torquay Museum, breaking all visitor records – up to 1000 visitors per day! “Not only has INVASION been a spectacular stand-alone success in attracting visitors,” says Carl Smith of Torquay Museum, “but it has also increased interest in our static collections and improved our customer loyalty – a vital aspect of the long-term health of the museum.”

Torquay Museum’s visitor numbers were launched into orbit when it exceeded its yearly visitor target in just ten weeks. Thanks to INVASION, nineteen thousand visitors came through the museum which expected to see 5,000 in the whole of year.

On the busiest day, over 1,000 visitors came to see the display of creatures, props and costumes from landmark and popular science fiction films and television series such as Alien, Lost in Space, Mars Attacks, Predator, Robocop, Star Wars, Terminator and The X-Files. Previously, the highest number of visitors the museum attracted in a day was 300.

“INVASION has its roots in a project commissioned for the Zenith Project some years ago” explains Don Jack, Creative Director of Ideas, the design consultancy that provided the exhibition. “We were asked to create a vision for a £20m visitor attraction, indoor ski centre and water park for Scarborough’s North Bay. One of our proposals: UFOLand, evolved into INVASION, an exhibition which has since appeared in many museums and tourist attractions over the years.”

“Because Ideas is a full service creative agency,” he continues, “we can advise on and provide related merchandising, vital in maximising the profitability of any exhibition. We have enormous experience in developing interactive and educational events, workshops, guest appearances and bolt-on event ideas which we know work, because our clients have used them in the past to great effect.

REVIEW

Art Factory – Robot (21 July – 28 August) attracted over 5000 visitors to the Turnpike Gallery this summer, making it one of the most popular exhibitions during the last decade. This family-friendly show was accompanied by a variety of drop-in activiities devised by the gallery, and in addition, over 700 adults and children participated in artist-led workshops. The majority of visitors to the gallery were from Leigh, Hindley, Tyldesley and Atherton. Partly as a result of a feature on BBC Radio Manchester, visitors also came from Oldham, Bury, Rochdale, St Helens and Manchester. Robot attracted a wide variety of people including teenagers and toddlers, young families and older adults, disabled people and community groups.

Selected comments included: “Today was really good and different. thank you” “I loved making my own robot.” “It’s totally awesome!” “Fabulous! We’re visiting from the USA and we loved the exhibition and robot craft.” “Fabulous idea for the kids.”

Another World exhibition

The spoils of a Grand Tour of an alternative civilisation; artefacts from a not-too-distant realm in a parallel universe.  

Another World has been hailed as one of the most compelling touring exhibitions in the UK. It’s an inclusive, diverse, educational and inspirational touring exhibition. Alien yet familiar: the edges of science-fiction and science-fact are blurred. The real and the invented combine to make the most sceptical look at the exhibit with new eyes.

Another World juxtaposes creative invention and the real world. The host city’s contributions to culture, science and the creative industries are cross-referenced with the displays, providing potential links with external sponsors. Integrated local history and explorers form the backbone of ongoing PR, helping to sustain ongoing press interest.

The exhibition is an array of beautifully presented artefacts. Some items are presented as biogenetic in nature, some contained in cryogenic chambers monitored for signs of degeneration. Each seems stranger and more thought-provoking than the last. As we discover and evaluate creatures and artefacts from this alternative realm, we come to embrace the true nature of our own existence – as the exhibition effortlessly ties in with the venue’s existing collections.

Another World is suitable for family tours, primary and secondary schools, treasure hunts, and design and writing workshops.

Extract from exhibition labels
Genetic robots adapt, redesign and reproduce themselves evolving into physical forms of complex algorithms. 

The cyberceptualists have long since changed their view of the beauty aesthetic. Pain-free reversible surgical procedures and robotic augmentation heralded mass manipulation and experiment in the quest for the unique or the perfect. The concept of beauty has long since been shunned. Business and industry also capitalise on these biological and technological leaps offering huge financial incentives to intellectually advanced individuals prepared to combine these characteristics, hoping to afford them commercial advantage. It was the time of the great leveller, there is nothing to want nor regret.
