(AP) - The Science Museum of Minnesota has won the rights to host the blockbuster exhibit "Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination" next year.
The "Star Wars" exhibit will open at the St. Paul museum in nine months, on June 13, the museum said Thursday.
The Science Museum is the final stop in the exhibit's national tour of eight museums before the exhibit is sent overseas.
But people can already log onto the museum's special Web site and sign up to be able to buy tickets in March, a month before general ticket sales begin.
The exhibit was developed by the Museum of Science in Boston in conjunction with Lucasfilm. It features more than 80 costumes, models, and props from all six Star Wars films.
Exhibit visitors will be able to climb aboard a full-size replica of the cockpit from Episode Four's Millennium Falcon, sit inside a real hovercraft and step into a lab where they can build and program robots and engineer droids.
