Star Trek: The Exhibit

You have to love a museum exhibit that encourages you to come in costume, but won't let you bring weapons, shields or phasers. I'm talking about the Star Trek exhibit at the Tech Museum in San Jose.

The exhibit features more than 200 Star Trek artifacts. While there, you'll see:

--a replica of the bridge from the U.S.S Enterprise NCC-1701 as featured in the original Star Trek television series --Iconic gadgets from the Star Trek universe (a tricorder; a phaser, and a communicator - all from the original series)
--The actual shooting model for the Borg Cube, as seen on Star Trek: The Next Generation, Voyager and in the movie Star Trek: First Contact
--ride on a Star Trek flight simulator

Plus, on certain days, you can watch Star Trek in the IMAX theater. It's shown most days, usually around 4:00 or 5:00, and sometimes later too.

It's not cheap. The exhibit costs $25 for adults (IMAX and simulator are extra fees) and $19 for kids. It does include museum admission. You can save by going in a group of 10 or more, or by being a member.

If you go, download the activity guide and educational guides - they're free and on the bottom of the Star Trek exhibit page.

The exhibit runs through April 11, 2010.
