Star Wars @ the Tech Museum

Last month for my birthday, my friends and I went to the Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination exhibit at San Jose’s Tech Museum! It was so fun seeing some of the props and costumes from the Star Wars saga. I feel like there could’ve been more things on display (no ewoks, tauntauns, Lando Calrissian, Boba Fett (he made an appearance there only recently), or Queen Amidala’s ornate ensemble from The Phantom Menace), but I still really loved seeing what was there, like Chewbacca! There was a sign that said he’d be leaving for the Smithsonian on January 16, so I’m really glad that I was able to see Chewy before he left. 🙂 And there was also a wampa, and jawas, a model of the Millenium Falcon, and Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper AND OTHER REALLY AMAZING AWESOME THINGS!

Here are some of the pictures I took while I was there:

This is the only Northern California stop for the Star Wars exhibit and its stay has been extended until the 23rd of March, so if you’re a huge Star Wars fan, you should definitely stop by! Who knows what else they might add to it!

Cheers,
Nina

  • This is so cool! Great pictures, too, I’d be so scared they would yell at me for snapping ’em.

    • Taking pictures is allowed there so long as the flash on your camera is off. So you’d only have to be scared of getting yelled at if that happens 🙂

  • My mind just exploded. I can’t believe how rad that exhibition is. You are so lucky to have a chance to see that much Star Wars history up close.

  • Ahhhhh! I’m so jealous xD

  • I love, love this exhibit! I’ve been it to it twice now in So. Cal. Funnily enough I also went for my birthday. Happy belated Birthday to you!

  • Radness! That places looks awesome! :DDD

    I would have loved to see all those ship models up close. My favourite stuff about Star Wars was always the behind the scenes stuff on the special effects. Such amazing craftsmanship.

  • What an awesome birthday treat!
