We have made the difficult decision to extend our temporary closure until further notice. The health and safety of our visitors, staff, and volunteers remains our top priority. We look forward to opening the museum's doors and seeing you again soon. Until then, since you can't come to us, we'll come to you with Museum at Home.
Our Top Star Trek Objects to Celebrate the Star Trek 50th Anniversary
“Live long and prosper.”
These words have echoed throughout pop culture for almost 50 years. Spock was just one character of a myriad of others in the Star Trek franchise millions have grown to love. At the museum, our love for Star Trek takes shape in our 150 piece collection. We have props aplenty from Star Trek: Into Darkness on display in the Schaefer Planetarium and Space Object Theater, but here we’re celebrating the series’ 50th anniversary (Sept. 8, 1966) by showing you some of the pieces we haven't had a chance to put on display in the gallery...
Parka and gloves worn by Leonard Nimoy in Star Trek (2009)
Perhaps inspired by Prince? Probably not.
“Bear Trek” Mr. Spock bear from 1991
Live long and cuddle, am I right?
Colorforms from 1975
Time to brush up on your Trekkie literature
