Star Trek: The Exhibition Still Open in Riverside and Sacramento
The opening in Valencia now makes it so there are three ‘engagements’ of official Star Trek exhibits open. Right now you can visit Star Trek The Exhibit at the Aerospace Museum in Sacramento and Star Trek: The Exhibition at the Riverside Metropolitan Museum. The Sacramento engagement includes a replica of the TOS bridge. The Riverside engagement is somewhat smaller and does not have a bridge replica. Both will remain open until early 2011.
So far the only known engagement for Star Trek: The Exhibition for 2011 is the Louisville Science Center in Louisville, KY, which is where the exhibit currently in Sacramento will go in January of 2011.
