Starting April 1st, 2017 in a land far, far away there will be a showcase of all that is fiction and science at the Glenn H. Curtiss Museum! In fact, it’s not so far away, it’s in Hammondsport, N.Y., just one of the coolest small towns on the East Coast.
Their exhibit “Boldly Exploring the Universe: Futuristic Movie Adventures in Space,” will feature props, costumes and artifacts from all of our favorite films and shows, like Star Trek, Lost in Space, Space: 1999, Andromeda, Galaxy Quest and others. Museum curator Rick Leisenring boasts “sci-fi fans of all ages will want to ‘beam themselves up’…to see items from some of their favorite movies” he continues, “we will display props and artifacts that everyone, from Trekkies to classic science fiction movie buffs, will enjoy.”
This exhibit will run from April 1, 2017 through September 30, 2017 and is open Monday through Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Glenn H. Curtiss Museum is located in the heart of New York’s Finger Lakes region. Their permanent exhibition is an extensive collection of items related to early aviation, motorcycles, and local history as well as a celebration of the life and accomplishments of Glenn Curtiss, the father of naval aviation and a pioneer in motorcycle manufacturing.
