Beam Me Back, Scotty

A display of the 1950s, '60s and '70s

Thursday 18 May - 24 September 2017

Teleport yourself to the Museum of Brands and back to the great era of space fiction. Dan Dare was the pilot of the future, Stingray and Thunderbirds ruled the Universe, Dr Who outwitted the Daleks, Star Trek reached new frontiers, and Star Wars - launched 40 years ago - created a new force that's still with us.

The magic and mystery of the moment is created by the vibrant artwork - children's comics and annuals, toys and games, film posters and even the packaging of the period.
