Tim Burton – director, producer, writer, poet, artist – is returning to the Czech Republic after 10 years to give his admirers another glimpse into the innermost recesses of his mind. The American film visionary connects the innocent world of childhood with the dark side of human existence, storytelling across genres and styles including a revival of stop-motion animation.

An exhibition which explores the more than 50-year artistic career of this visual storyteller, who always manages to lighten his darkly tuned stories with his trademark exaggeration and humor. After 10 years the exhibition returns to Prague with new material from recent projects.

term: 1st of May – 30th of September, 2024
opening hours: 10 am – 7 pm


The return to Prague follows a world tour which has delighted visitors of the world’s top museums and galleries including the Max Ernst Museum in Bruhl, the Mori Arts Gallery in Tokyo, the Museo Franz Mayer in Mexico, and the Design Museum in Seoul, plus many more.

The exhibition features over 530 works, including storyboards, sketches, scene designs, puppets, and photographs from timeless film classics such as Beetlejuice, Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Mars Attacks! and Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas to contemporary films like Dumbo and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

The exhibition is organized by independent curator Jenny He in collaboration with Tim Burton Productions and Art Movement.
