The Hollywood Science Fiction Museum Is Just Getting Started


What is in the proposed finished product? The lobby features huge, suspended models of the Enterprise from Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Wars' Millennium Falcon. The various exhibit halls include a variety of ships, cars, and robots from science fiction. Serenity (Firefly), the TARDIS (Doctor Who), Vipers (Battlestar Galactica), AT-ATs (Star Wars), Back To The Future's DeLorean, various Batmobiles, Iron Man, the T-800 (Terminator), R2-D2, C3PO, and so very many more. The museum would include a theater, lasertag, and even be 100% solar powered.

One concept the Kickstarter page and official website visit repeatedly is that the museum would also work to bring in real life science as well. The Hall of Real Robots, for instance, would display a rotating exhibit of robots from various organization around the world, such as [a href="http://asimo.honda.com/"]Honda's Asimo[/a] or the Mars Rover. Science fiction has always been a point of contact for young people that eventually find themselves in STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and the Hollywood Science Fiction Museum seems intent to help young people draw that connection.

As exciting as all of that is, the Hollywood Science Fiction Museum is a huge, expensive undertaking put together by a group of enthusiasts and fans. Hopefully, they will gain the interest they need to make this a reality. The initial Kickstarter was fully funded yesterday and even managed to surpass the goal by ten thousand dollars. We'll see if that momentum can be maintained in future campaigns.

"Hey, let's go visit a museum kids."

"Awwww, but I don't wanna learn about farm equipment and how they used to build roads."

"Oh don't worry... Where we're going, we don't need roads."

I cannot approve of this enough.

For those NOT interested in throwing money at kickstarter, there's going to be a open all-type science fiction museum opening in Washington D.C. in the next few years. The plans are to cover books, movies, tv, and games, ranging from now back to the birth of TV.
