Fun and educational talk: Star Wars versus reality

Star Wars takes place in a ‘Galaxy far, far away’, where the technology is far ahead of ours. In this fun and educational talk we’ll show you the differences, as well as the similarities, between Star Wars’ technology and our own. This lecture is given twice a day in the Ariane room.
Times: 11:30 - 12:00 | 14:30 – 15:00.

Of course, you will want to use the inspiration gained at Space Expo to build your own spacy LEGO creations in the Astronaut room.

An exhibition from a galaxy far away

till 7 March 2020!

Millions of people from all over the world love Star Wars. A space saga told in no fewer than nine films, divided into three trilogies. Space Expo loves Star Wars, too. And because there’s a new Star Wars film in the cinemas, we’re hosting a very special presentation at Space Expo, put together by several Dutch collectors. Our holiday program is all about… A galaxy far away!
