Star Trek: Exploring New Worlds
What: This exhibit looks at the legacy of the “Star Trek” franchise — which celebrated its 50th anniversary this year — including its cultural impact and how it led people to create and invent. The exhibit gives visitors the opportunity to see how the technology envisioned in the series has become real-life technology such as cellphones, tablets and virtual reality devices.
When: Through Jan. 8.
Where: Museum of Pop Culture, 325 Fifth Ave. N., Seattle. The museum recently changed its name from EMP Museum.
Explore the Star Trek universe: The fully immersive exhibit features more than 100 artifacts and props from the five Star Trek television series, spin-offs and movies. Among the attractions are set pieces from the original series, such as Captain Kirk’s command chair and the navigation console, both on public display for the first time; costumes worn by Kirk, Spock, Uhura and McCoy in the original series; and the 6-foot model of the U.S.S. Enterprise used in the filming of “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”
Cost: $21-$30, includes admission to the other museum galleries. Museum members admitted for $5. Children 4 and younger admitted free.
