Ripley’s St. Augustine Odditorium is proud to celebrate the opening of its’ new Space Oddities gallery this Saturday, March 12th, with an “Out of this World” grand opening party! The party will be FREE and open to the public. There will be cake, inflatables, “Dunk the Martian”, a table for kids to create their own rocket ships, free Moon Pies to the first 150 people, a moon walk contest on stage, and lots of giveaways!
The Space Oddities gallery is a two-story exhibit featuring: a giant replica of the International Space Station made entirely from matchsticks; the rover featured in the movie Armageddon; amazing inter-actives that replicate the sounds of space and highlight the physiological changes that occur in the human body during space travel; an erector set model of the lunar landing pad and much more!
Star Wars fans will want to check out the cast of the film carved into the heads of crayons, some of Chewbacca’s fur from the original movie, a female Boba Fett replica and much more! Guests can even compare their weight on a number of different planets.
The exhibit will open this Saturday, March 12th and is included in the admission price to Ripley’s.
