Cartoon lovers can watch their favorite characters come to life, beginning at the end of the month.

A new 6,000-square-foot exhibition at the New York Hall of Science (NYSCI) — called “Animation” — explores animation from concept to finished product, from storyboards, character design and drawing techniques to movement, timing, filming and sound.

The exhibit — which includes a screening room and a cartoon museum — also features “larger-than-life” colorful graphics of popular Cartoon Network characters from shows like “Dexter’s Laboratory” and “Ed, Edd n Eddy.” It also teaches visitors the history of animation.

“Animation” is open from March 31 through September 2 and is free with general NYSCI admission.
