The “Star Was: The Myth of Magic” was an exhibition about Star Wars. It showcased artwork, models, props and costumes from the original trilogy movies and The Phantom Menace (the other movies had not come out at that time).
The exhibition was put together by the Smithsonian Instutute in 1997, and later toured around the world. These photos are from my visit in October 2002, when the exhibition was at the PowerHouse Museum in Sydney, Australia.
A large model of an Imperial Star Destroyer greets visitors at the entrance. Sort of like at the opening scene of the first movie.
