From a Galaxy far, far away comes an absolute must see for fans of Star Wars and Sci-Fi.
May The Toys Be With You showcases one of Britain’s finest Star Wars collections, featuring some of the first toys, posters and memorabilia produced. It gives visitors the chance to get up-close to stunning life-sized replicas of Darth Vader, R2D2, a Stormtrooper, Yoda and a Boba Fett helmet and chest armour, and there is even a full-sized Star Wars X-Wing Cockpit arcade video game that visitors can play, and much more.
Torquay Museum has showcased several hugely popular Sci-Fi exhibitions over the past decade – but this is the first time that it has had an exhibition dedicated entirely to Star Wars. What’s more, the Museum will have an in-house Stormtrooper and Darth Maul wandering its corridors throughout the exhibition, so visitors will get to meet them in the flesh whenever they visit. You can even volunteer to dress as the Museum Stormtrooper throughout the summer – just contact Torquay Museum.
