About the Museum

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is the world's preeminent movie related organization, comprised of 7,000+ accomplished men and women working in cinema. The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures—located in the historic May Company building in the Miracle Mile neighborhood of Los Angeles— will be the world’s premier institution devoted to exploring the art and science of movies and moviemaking.

Designed by Pritzker-Prize winning architect Renzo Piano, the museum will consist of a major renovation to the 1930s Streamline Moderne May Company building plus a soaring spherical addition that will house a 1,000-seat theater. Visitors to the museum will experience the magic of cinema and the creative, collaborative process of filmmaking.

The Academy Museum will feature six stories of dynamic spaces, including more than 50,000 square feet of immersive exhibition galleries, a state-of-the-art education studio, two film and performance theaters, a restaurant and café, and dynamic public and special event spaces.

The Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will open in 2019.
