Sci-Fi Museum To Debut

1 min read

SciFiMuseum112013

A new science fiction museum will be opened in Washington, D.C.

Although the sci-fi museum won’t open until 2017, a “preview space” for the museum will open next year.

The museum will cover a “broad sampling of science fiction across literature, television, film, music, video games and art.”

“There really wasn’t a comprehensive science-fiction museum here in the United States or internationally,” said Greg Viggiano, executive director of the new venture. “I thought, maybe somebody should do something about this.”

The museum will feature seven galleries, which will include “the creators, vehicles, time travel concepts, aliens, computers, robots and technology.”

The museum content will start with Frankenstein author Mary Shelley, considered by many the first sci-fi author, and run through to present-day material, including Star Trek.

Some materials have already been promised for loan to the museum, including the Enterprise E model from Star Trek: Insurrection.

Many of the exhibits are expected to be interactive, geared toward “kids and kids-at-heart.”

  1. Ahh, the last physical Enterprise filming model. A relic of a bygone age, when foamed latex and stop-motion skeletons roamed the Earth.

  2. I can only presume that a museum focusing on seemingly-impossible things and departures from reality will be locatedin the Capitol Building.

  3. You always give the best comments, Kang. 🙂 Do you write Star Trek fan fiction or your own fiction? I can imagine it would be good!
