Star Wars characters on the Sesame Street steps

In Another Galaxy

Be transported to another universe when you enter The Strong dressed as your favorite family-friendly science-fiction character! Try your hand at vintage sci-fi arcade games, go through the Astronaut Training course, create your own alien to take home and learn how to draw some of your favorite sci-fi characters with a local book illustrator.

Meet other-worldly characters like The Doctor, Guardians of the Galaxy, and the Alien Queen. Pose for pictures with costumers from the 501st Legion (Vader’s First) and the Rebel Legion.
