A traveling exhibit called “Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination” starts an extended stay in Seattle this weekend, at the Pacific Science Center. We stopped by today for a sneak preview, and it’s pretty cool stuff, with real props and characters in addition to exhibits that connect the science fiction from the films to the reality of today.
See our video tour above, and our photo gallery below.
And if you really want to get your “Star Wars” geek on, drop by for the opening ceremonies tomorrow morning at 10 a.m., featuring West Seattle’s Chief Sealth High School Concert Band performing “Star Wars” music, plus more than 40 members of the 501st Garrison and Rebel Legion, Star Wars “costuming organizations” — including Darth Vader, Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Obi-wan Kenobi, Chewbacca and more than a dozen Storm Troopers.
The exhibit runs through May 8. Admission is $20 for adults, and $15 for children.
