  • Happened across the location and dropped in out of curiosity. They have a small store front with lots of star wars toys and items available for purchase, along with 3 small show rooms of different star wars and super hero memorabilia/costumes. The owners were very informed about their collection and it was enjoyable talking to them about how they managed to obtain the different items. Overall, the collection is not enormous and the tour area is fairly small, but the 45 minutes of entertainment seemed worth the entry price to me.
  • It's a trap! A religious tourist trap. Huge Star Wars fan. Came inside thinking this would be some cool nerd haven. As I was browsing some of the toys they had for sale, I heard one of the employees giving a tour talking about "biblical parallels" with Star Wars characters. Then the nice girl who was working the register handed me a leaflet all about Star Wars and the Bible. Couldn't have been more dissapointed.
  • This is an amazing location to visit. The staff are very friendly and knowlegable on Star Wars trivia. It was a fun experience and well worth the time to visit.
  • Impressive personal collection of toys/playsets/games from the Star Wars universe. That said, I'm glad we were there for the "off season" discounted admission rate. A handful of professionally made costumes/life size figures from a promotional tie-in were nice, but can be seen in the lobby without paying for the tour.
  • I think I was more impressed with the lobby than the actual museum. I hope improvements can be made in time, because it needs a ton of work. Some of the props were obviously handmade, which really clashed with the items that looked like exact replicas. Once I began the tour, I instantly noticed how small the exhibit was. You'd be hard-pressed to spend more than 10 minutes here. The lighting in the back room didn't work, so I had to walk around using light from my phone. It mainly featured superhero props of varying quality. The Dark Knight trailer looping on a random laptop kind of baffled me. Was a proper TV not available? This place is less a museum and more a hodgepodge of memorabilia collected by a fan. Even the kiddo with me was disappointed. It frankly looked unfinished, and the price of admission is steep for what's here.
