"Star Wars" Characters Invade Anchorage Museum on Stormtrooper Saturdays
Museum guests can have a thrilling, face-to-face encounter with Darth Vader and other "Star Wars" characters on Stormtrooper Saturdays at the Anchorage Museum.
Every Saturday in April from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., "Star Wars" characters will roam the museum. On any given Saturday, museum visitors may encounter Darth Vader, stormtroopers, clonetroopers, Jawas or Jedis. The characters are available to answer questions and pose for pictures.
The exhibition "Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination" is on view through April 25 at the Anchorage Museum.
