    Star Wars Community Day

    Education - Fair/Festival

    Saturday, April 15, 2017
    10:00 AM-5:00 PM

    Museum Wide

    Come dressed as your favorite Star Wars character and join Jedi Knights and Imperial Stormtroopers for a day of "Force-full" fun! While here, visit the museum's galleries to see the inspiration for the fantasy armor. Create Star Wars-inspired art; Compare a Stormtrooper's armor to that of a Gothic knight; watch a light saber battle; see if you have what it takes to be a Jedi checking out a light saber class; and much more.
