The traveling exhibit, “Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination,” is nearing the end of its eight year run. The exhibit – which features props, costumes, and models from all six Star Wars movies – has been seen by fans in 19 cities across the United States, and its final journey has taken it to George Lucas’ backyard.
The exhibit will be on display starting on October 19, 2013 at The Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose, CA through February 23, 2014. After that, the treasured artifacts will return home to the Skywalker Properties archives. If all goes well with Lucas’ plans for the proposed “Lucas Cultural Arts Museum,” the items will find a new and more permanent home.
If you’re in the area, you can plan your visit to the exhibit right here.
