Disney fanatics can now own a piece of the Happiest Place on Earth at a new pop-up exhibit filled with retro souvenirs, vintage ride vehicles, artwork and more.
That’s From Disneyland, located in Sherman Oaks, California, is a pop-up shop full of pieces from the large private collection of collector Richard Kraft. The Mickey Mouse-packed shop is stocked with beloved pieces like a Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride car, a Matterhorn bobsled, a vintage Disneyland ticket booth, all four of the original Haunted Mansion stretching room paintings, original concept art and more. Remember Rocket Rods that lasted for a minute? There’s one of the shuttles here. You can even find a 16-foot-tall neon letter “D” which used to welcome guests to the Disneyland Hotel. And of course, the shop is set up for plenty of photo opportunities. Think the Museum of Ice Cream meets Mickey Mouse.
“After 25 years of hoarding artifacts from Disneyland in my home, office and countless storage facilities, I’m swinging open the doors to my collection and throwing a bon voyage party for everyone who shares fond memories of Disneyland. This free exhibit is my way of saying goodbye to my beloved treasures from the Happiest Place on Earth,” says Kraft.
Kraft has partnered with Von Eaton Galleries to create the 40,000-square-foot museum. The free exhibit will conclude with an auction that will take place Aug. 25 and 26.
If you can’t make it out in time, the collection can also be browsed online here. And if you see a must-have piece, you can even place an online bid during the end-of-month auction.
The pop-up exhibit will be open Wednesdays through Sundays, from 12 to 8 p.m.
