    Yeah, I saw the report as well. My brother and his g/f saw the same exhibition in Lissabon last year. He took some pictures with his cell phone, which unfortunately weren't of that good quality.

    I might check it out, if time permits, when I'm in London. But CE comes first! [face_peace]

    I'll probably go in May on a weekday (less crowds if the kiddies are in school). However I expect a return visit in July when Tim is over.

    Wow, makes him fit very well in the HTF category, right? :p

    On topic: ya think this is the same thing that was at the Smithsonian a while ago? Magic of Myth is what that's called.

    Maybe some of the same items. There is another exhibition wrapping up in Los Angeles right now.
    I suspect that the items from the L.A exhibition are going to be displayed at C.IV., and later
    at C.E.

    Apparently this exhibit has been (or is) in Lisbon. Some folks over on Rebelscum were talking about it in their Europe forum.

    I went to see this today. It's worth making time for it while you are at CE. (It's expensive to get in though - £16.50 each. I didn't notice if they have special prices for kids/family tickets as I was on my own). I'll stick a link in here when I get my pics online. A Monday morning turned out to be a good choice for visiting - there were hardly any people. Easy to get pics!

    Late edit:
    [link=http://s33.photobucket.com/albums/d61/LAJFETT/SWexhibit/]Here's[/link] some photos I took today. Apologies in advance for the flash - a lot of the exhibit was too dark to do without and some of the rooms were too small to get an angle where the flash wouldn't glare off of something. Also in the album is a pic I took of the life-size Animated Leia that Forbidden Planet have in their window. (This was for the folks in the Collecting forum).

    Seems to be the same as in Milan as well, I think it makes sense though that they have a "European" exhibit traveling around the continent.
