The Strong Museum Hosts Sci-Fi Weekend

“Intergalactic Outpost”
On November 21 and 22

Come dressed as your favorite character and journey to a far-off universe during Intergalactic Outpost at The Strong museum from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 21, and Sunday, November 22. Meet popular Star Wars character actors from the 501st and Rebel Legions, and superhero favorites from the Superhero Alliance of Western New York. (All character meetups will follow The Strong’s COVID-19 safety guidelines.)

Also, all weekend long:

  • Make a headband and transform into an out-of-this world character at the
    Alien Station.
  • Test your skills on sci-fi games such as the 2017 Star Wars Limited Edition Pinball, the original 1992 Star Wars Pinball, or Star Wars Battle Pods arcade game. (Tokens required for some games.)
  • View science-fiction artifacts—including action figures and spaceships—from the museum’s collections.

Intergalactic Outpost activities, except electronic games, included with general museum admission fees. The program is not affiliated with LucasFilm, Marvel, or Walt Disney Pictures. Programs underwritten in part by Delta Air Lines, the official airline of The Strong.
