Star Wars: The Force is Strong with the Smithsonian
Since its debut in 1977, Star Wars™ has become a worldwide popular phenomenon. Star Wars–related objects, from lunch boxes to the famous droids "you're looking for," are at home in the National Museum of American History collections. The Smithsonian's traveling exhibition, Rebel, Jedi, Princess, Queen: Star Wars and the Power of Costume, focuses on the challenges and triumphs of dressing a mythical universe. The National Air and Space Museum's past exhibition, Star Wars: The Magic of Myth, explored the mythical message of Luke Skywalker's journey from his first call to adventure to his final victory.
