Hollywood Science Fiction Museum
I’m very picky about what crowd funding campaigns I cover on AlmostNerdy.com. We receive requests for Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns daily. However, this one particularly caught my eye. A nonprofit educational museum that teaches Science Fiction in Film, TV, Art and Literature and Real Space and Science through Sci-Fi. It doesn’t hurt that I’m a huge Star Wars fan.
The same people behind the Enterprise-D Bridge Restoration have come together to present The Hollywood Science Fiction Museum. This will be the first museum in the world to exclusively show the history of sci-fi films, TV, art and literature through props, sets and costumes, as well as show advancements in space travel and teach Real Science through Science Fiction. It will be an interactive museum with fully immersive environments and touch screens that will incorporate old and new footage from actors, filmmakers and NASA astronauts and scientists, and will present both the fact and fiction of sci-fi. This will eventually teach Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) based education in a fun new way to all ages.
The museum will include exhibits from: Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who, 2001, Alien, Metropolis, Thunderbirds, Firefly, Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate, Blake’s 7, Ghostbusters, Farscape, The Time Machine, Godzilla, X-Men, Avengers, Superman, Planet of the Apes, Back to the Future, Day the Earth Stood Still, V, Batman, Six Million Dollar Man, Bionic Woman, Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers, as well as Fantasy like Lord of the Rings, Labyrinth, Legend, Munsters, Herbie the Love Bug, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Dark Crystal, Game of Thrones, Anime like Akira and Speed Racer, and anything else we can fit within our walls.
I don’t know about you but I’m ready to go tomorrow. This sounds like so much fun and a great way to not only teach children but introduce them to the world of Sci-fi. The campaign still has 12 days to go and they still need our help to make this happen and reach their goal. I strongly stand behind this campaign and urge you to join in and give what you can. This will be a day long remembered.
