Take a Tour of the Museum of Science Fiction

Exciting news for sci-fi geeks: you’re getting your own museum.* Scheduled to open in 2017 in Washington, D.C., the museum will offer exhibits that “span TV, movies, books, art, comics, video games and music, but more than that the museum will bridge the gap to other worlds and distant times.”

The video below gives you some more insight into the museum’s plans.

UNDERWIRE reports that Isaac Isamov’s novels will get a tribute, plus there are “plans for a life-size replica of H.G. Wells’ time machine and a 1:10 scale model of the Nautilus from Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.”

Find out more and see an illustrated gallery of upcoming exhibits at wired.com.

*Although I excluded myself from that pronoun, I won’t pretend I didn’t notice the spokesperson (1:20) casually sporting a Battlestar Galactica uniform.
