May The Force Be With You – at the Star Wars Science Discovery Weekend

May 16, 2011

By Alyssa Green

Are you a Star Wars fan?  How about your kids?  I bet you have spent countless hours together watching the movies, building with  Star Wars legos, or dueling with light sabers.  If so, you are all in for a treat this upcoming weekend.  Take a trip back to the 1970’s by celebrating one of the most famous movies of all time with the Sacramento Discovery Museum Science and Space Center. 

This month the Discovery Museum is celebrating science milestones of the 70’s” and Star Wars fans ages 12 and under should head on over to the museum on May 21st or 22nd between 12:30 and 4:00pm for some intergalactic fun.

Kids will be able to make a Star Wars themed project (a paper Star Wars diorama) while watching the original movie Star Wars IV: A New Hope.  There will also be fun Star Wars memorabilia on display including a white Clone Trooper Helmet for the kids to try on.

So, dig out those old Star Wars costumes and let the fun begin!  Not only will your kids have a great time in costume, but they’ll also receive $1.00 off admission to the museum just for dressing up.

General weekend admission is free for children 0-3,  $4.00 for children 4-12, $5.00 for teens and Seniors, and $6.00 for adults.

*The Discovery Science and Space Center is graciously giving away a ONE YEAR Family Membership to one of our lucky readers.  So, if you want to win it…check out their website here, and then come back to our site at and leave a comment about what your kids love about the Museum.   The winner will be randomly chosen on Friday, May 20th.

    My son was in such awe the first time we visited the Discovery Museum. We can easily spend hours here. His favorite part was the space center & planetarium. Although, he really enjoyed everything.
    My son & I are such science geeks and love everything there is to learn about science.
