Star Wars at the Discovery Science Center


Last week was spring break for the kids, so we trucked down to the OC to see the Star Wars exhibit at the Discovery Science Center.  I've been drooling over this place since I found out about it back in October.  The display is only around for a few more weeks, and we had a birthday to celebrate, so this was the perfect opportunity to check it out.

And it did not disappoint.

These photos don't need much narrative, so I'll keep it to a minimum.

I'm as excited as a 10 year old boy on Opening Weekend.
Didja know Chewy was based on Lucas' dog, Indiana?
I wonder how well the extras saw out of this.
Droidekas are pretty cool.
Roger Roger.
Boba Fett's blaster had a strangely western vibe to it.
Stormtrooper.  Not to be confused with Clone Trooper.
The Wampa was underwhelming.
Sitting in the Millenium Falcon replica was worth the extra 5 bucks.
Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope.
If I could've, I would've snuck this one home in my purse.

If you're in the So Cal area in the next few weeks, this is definitely worth the stop.

WOW! That is very cool. My son would lose his mind...

So I accidentally erased my commenting widget, and therefore couldn't respond to your comment about summertime child care, but yeah. We're right there with you. Sigh.

So cool! My husband is a gigantic Star Wars fan, he would love to sit in a Millenium Falcon.

Rebeccah, I delete stuff all the time without meaning too...nice to know I'm not alone.

Carrie, my husband and boys are total fans too. That's the only reason I am such a nerd about it. It's all their fault.
