INDIANAPOLIS - The force is with the Indiana State Museum.
The Indianapolis Star reports an exhibition called "Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination" opened at the museum this weekend. The exhibit lets visitors sit in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon Interactive Experience and includes a short film narrated by Anthony Daniels, the voice of C-3PO. The exhibition compares futuristic sci-fi technology to today's real-life breakthroughs in transportation, robotics and medicine.
Organizers say it's the largest exhibition in State Museum history. The main show is on the building's third floor, while the Millennium Falcon Interactive Experience is a separate first-floor attraction.
The museum expects thousands to attend the exhibit that runs through Labor Day.
