Family of 4: 35,18,17,15. Enjoyed the Veteran's Day Parade. Parking was free. The Star Wars Exhibition was really neat to see. Each item displayed was not a replica but the real deal from the different Star Wars episodes. The makers really paid...continued

It was really great to see the models, and hear the commentaries about the making of the movies. It was a pleasant reminder of the first time I saw Episode IV so long ago. I liked the integration of current technologies too, like the mag-lev,...continued

Bought this for my husband since he's a Star Wars fan and I have to admit that I actually enjoyed the exhibit as well. Where else will you be able to come face to face with Yoda, R2D2, 3CPO, Anacon, and Darth Vader a minute later? Even though it...continued

The Star Wars exhibit was fabulous. There was so much to see. The ties to real science were thought provoking. We especially enjoyed learning about how the sounds were done and the hands on exhibits. The exhibit is terrific for all ages.

Went at 4 pm, on a Thursday with 3 grandsons, aged 2 - 9 and daughter-in-law. The models they used to film the movies were very interesting to see, as well as the costumes of the major characters. There were hands-on exhibits for the boys to...continued

Plenty of cases full of costumes and models. Lucked out and went on a rainy day, so picture taking was not impacted. Great deal with Goldstar - thanks. Checked out the museum after enjoying the show.

I loved the videos with the creators of the vehicles, droids, creatures and sounds telling about how they worked and some of the inspiration. The ones about robots and replacing limbs were the best. Lots of interactive projects and challenges....continued

It was great seeing all the displays. The interactive areas we great too. The Millennium Falcon experience was not quite what I expected. It wasn't really Star Wars themed. It was more educational. About space and the galaxies. It didn't shake or...continued

(TL:DR - great exhibit, but we ended up paying full price due to poor managing from both museum and Goldstar)

Exhibit was great - a must for Star Wars fans, and designed in such a way that kids can enjoy a lot too. The Millenium Falcon experience...continued

Fun exhibition for fans. A little small for the money and the Falcon experience costs extra. At least, this should have pointed out upfront. Some games/activities were fun but more for kids. Go if you are around and love Star Wars. Otherwise...

Great place to go, especially with kids who have seen the Star Wars movies. There are model ships, costumes, props, plus hands-on exhibits like building vehicles on magnetic tracks and creating a robot that follows directions.

I was a little underwhelmed by the overall exhibit and interactive stations. The millennium falcon experience was pretty cool though [which was a separate (minimal) cost].
