The Haunted Mansion sculpture by Robert Olszewski

This is a sculpture of The Haunted Mansion by Robert Olszewski. I bought this at Disneyland a few years ago, and it is quite amazingly detailed. It also has a light treatment- flick a switch and you see what the Mansion looks like at night.

Disneyland's Haunted Mansion has a unique exterior look compared to the Haunted Mansions found at other Disney theme parks around the world (in Florida, Tokyo, Paris, etc.). This sculpture is a replica of Disneyland's Haunted Mansion, which was the first Haunted Mansion built by Disney. The Haunted Mansion exterior building appeared at Disneyland first in 1963, and opened as an attraction in 1969.

During the winter holidays, Disneyland changes the exterior and show of The Haunted Mansion. Starting in November, the Mansion becomes "Haunted Mansion Holiday" and features the characters from Tim Burton's "Nightmare Before Christmas".

Robert Olszewski has a Disneyland Collection where he is in the process of sculpting every single attraction (and building) inside of Disneyland in Anaheim. He has an amazing collection, which can be seen at his website,
