The Academy Museum still plans to debut this December, throwing open its doors to anyone interested in the highlights of cinema history. In a hard hat tour earlier this year, the physical facility appeared mostly complete. The last major step left is completing the exhibition galleries.

The Museum has finally given us a glance of what we'll see when we get to step inside those galleries.

You'll see a gallery devoted to The Wizard of Oz (including Dorothy's ruby slippers), another one focused on science fiction and fantasy that includes C-3PO, R2-D2, E.T., and more. The museum will even spoil the end of Citizen Kane for you with the Rosebud sled. (Oops, was I not supposed to say that? Sorry.)

Regardless of whether the museum actually manages to open Dec. 14, you can see photos from our behind-the-scenes hard hat tour from two months ago (remember when we could go outside and tour things?) or read more about the exhibitions and check out renderings from the firm that designed the museum.
