Star Wars has been a huge part of modern culture since the release of the original film in 1977. First held in Canada in 2012, the Star Wars Identities: The Exhibition will be staged in Tokyo's Warehouse Terrada in Shinagawa from early August, 2019 until mid-January, 2020.
Featuring a massive collection of original artefacts, costumes and props from the films, the exhibition explores the characters of the Star Wars galaxy. Using the vast resources of the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art to accomplish this, visitors are able to discover their own Star Wars identities through immersive exploration, including the chance to create your own Star Wars character.
Check the official website for information on ticketing options, holiday closing times and souvenir purchases. Please note that some areas of the exhibition do not allow photography.
