SOLD OUT - Dinner with a Curator: Star Wars

This event is full — please check our calendar for more upcoming events in our Dinner with a Curator Series.

Eric Rivet presents "WWII in a Galaxy Far, Far Away"

Although the Star Wars movies present a futuristic galaxy of space combat and laser guns, nearly all of the weapons and many of the props used in the original trilogy are World War I and World War II firearms and field equipment. The National WWII Museum has examples of most of these weapons in its collection, including the types of guns carried by Han Solo and Boba Fett and the lightsaber used by Luke Skywalker. Join Curator Eric Rivet for a discussion of the weapons and equipment used in the Star Wars films and see them for yourself.
