A substantial exhibition featuring around 200 original costumes, props, models, and pieces of artwork, spanning all six of the movies, and the ongoing TV series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

There’s BB-8, R2-D2, Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon and even an AT-AT. Other favourites, like Yoda, Chewbacca, Boba Fett, Princess Leia, stormtroopers, and Darth Vader, are also on display. As are many more, including dozens of objects being exhibited for the first time.

The exhibition explores the theme of identity using ten components that help make us who we are: species, genes, parents, culture, mentors, friends, events, occupation, personality, and values.

These ten components are grouped into the exhibition’s three main sections, which follow the progression of identity from childhood to adulthood: first Origins, then Influences, and finally Choices. This thematic backbone gives structure not only to the educational content of the exhibition but to the Star Wars collection as well.

From a scientific perspective, visitors learn how these components affect identity. Ten videos, one per component, combine clips from Star Wars with animated graphics explaining how each component plays a part in shaping who we are—“we” in this case referring simultaneously to the fictional characters of the Star Wars universe and to the visitors themselves.
