This exhibition has now closed, find out what else is going on at Maidstone Museum & Bentlif Art Gallery

“A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...” This unmissable exhibition for Star Wars fans everywhere comes to Maidstone Museum.

From X-Wing fighters to lightsabers, May The Toys Be With You is one of the UK’s finest collections of vintage Star Wars toys and original cinema posters.

These fantastical designs became the playthings of a generation, and have fired our imaginations and claimed their place in our cultural landscape since the first film was released 40 years ago.

For little and big kids alike, this is a not-to be-missed opportunity to view rarely seen and highly collectable Star Wars treasures.
