Grown-up Tip: There are many important themes in movies like Star Wars, such as doing the right thing even when it is hard to do. Think about using stories that appeal to children to open a discussion about these important values. It’s a great opportunity to talk about the qualities that separated the ‘good guys’ from the ‘bad guys’ as well as the emotions these characters must have felt.
RSVP: Not required
Fee: Included with museum admission. Come dressed as a Star Wars character for $1.00 off of general admission!
