The New Starship Foundation plans on opening a sci-fi museum in Hollywood next year.
The Hollywood Science Fiction Museum will be “the world’s first dedicated science fiction museum that will celebrate sci-fi in film, TV, art and literature.”
“The [museum] project began two years ago when writer/fan Huston Huddleston found two discarded Star Trek Enterprise Bridge sets created by Paramount in 1998 for touring, and decided to restore them.”
“The [Hollywood Science Fiction Museum] will be an interactive museum with fully immersive environments and touch screens that will incorporate old and new footage from actors, filmmakers and NASA astronauts and scientists, and will present both the fact and fiction of sci-fi. This will eventually teach Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) based education in a fun new way to all ages.”
The Hollywood Science Fiction Museum will feature exhibits from: “Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who, 2001, Alien, Metropolis, Thunderbirds, Firefly, Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate, Blake’s 7, Ghostbusters, Farscape, The Time Machine, Godzilla, X-Men, Avengers, Superman, Planet of the Apes, Back to the Future, Day the Earth Stood Still, V, Batman, Six Million Dollar Man, Bionic Woman, Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers, as well as fantasy like Lord of the Rings, Labyrinth, Legend, Munsters, Herbie the Love Bug, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Dark Crystal, Game of Thrones, anime like Akira and Speed Racer.”
A Kickstarter campaign for the museum project is in progress, with the goal of raising $82,300. It can be found here.
The Starship Foundation‘s Board of Directors includes: Huston Huddleston (CEO), Ronald D. Moore, Rick Sternbach, Larry Nemecek, Doug Drexler, David Gerrold, Andrew Probert, and Timothy Earls.
