Square Enix aren’t the only ones celebrating Mickey Mouse’s ninetieth birthday. In honor of the cartoon mouse’s entry into his nonagenarian years, there will be a 16,000 square foot exhibition set up at 60 Tenth Avenue in New York City.

The exhibition is described as “immersive” and probes Mickey’s “consistent impact on the arts and creativity in all its forms.” There will be both historic artwork and other items, as well as work from contemporary artists. According to the exhibition’s FAQ page, the whole experience runs an average of ninety minutes.

Tickets for the exhibition are $38 for all but infants and toddlers–kids under three–get in for free. However, this exhibit does not allow strollers, so you may want to think twice about bringing very young children to the event.

The tickets, as those for big comic-cons, can only be bought at certain intervals and at certain times, and only 20 can be purchased by one person. Tickets must be bought beforehand, as none will be sold at the door. However, if you can’t get tickets online, you can still visit the exhibition’s pop-up store full of exclusive Mickey goods freely.

Mickey: The True Original Exhibition opens on November 8 and runs until February 10. If you’re interested in an extra-special Mickey Mouse experience, we suggest you try to book tickets for November 18: that’s his birthday!
