Avatar: The Exhibition is heading to Canada for the first stop on its North American tour.

The Museum in Kitchener will host the exhibition from October 11th. It was developed by Seattle's EMP Museum in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products.

The exhibit explores the creation and development of Pandora, how Avatar was brought to life on the big screen through technology and its impact on filmmaking. It also examines themes centred on worldly cultures and earth sciences.

Avatar is the highest grossing film of all time, and the exhibition will feature authentic props and costumes, interactive displays, concept models and sketches from the movie.

"The exhibition will be a unique opportunity for people to learn more, not only about how the film was made, but also experience Pandora in a much deeper way," said the film's director, James Cameron. "Fans will be able to see in person, the workmanship behind the film, whether it's how scenes are captured or how a Na'vi costume was built, first as a real world garment then produced digitally."
