Travelling Galaxy

Based on a private collection, interactive exhibition Travelling Galaxy showcases over two hundred models, miniatures, and life-sized figures, never before seen by the general public. Recently revamped, the display now offers a second act to captivate visitors. While still primarily focused on the original Star Wars trilogy (episodes IV, V, VI), the new exhibition introduces characters from video games, recent series, and books. Collaborating with astronomers from Svábhegyi Observatory, the organizers have recently enriched the exhibition’s captivating world with exciting and innovative educational content! When you visit, you’ll encounter not just the Star Wars Universe known from the movies, but also delve into scientific background information during the guided tour. This means that it’s not just the visuals that transform the exhibition into a lasting experience!
