Screen-used props, costumes & published artwork vividly illustrate the history of Science-Fiction. The unique collection is arranged chronologically, celebrating the milestones of SF. The intimate tour begins with the seminal work of H.G. Wells & the vintage space-heroes of the early pulp magazine serials. Amongst many fascinating artefacts, here you will find a complete ‘Morlock’ costume from ‘The Time Machine’ (2002) alongside a rare surviving helmet from the orignal Buster Crabbe 'Flash Gordon' serials (dating back to 1940).
Progressing through the first half of the museum collection, the story of SF enfolds with exhibits from such genre classics as 'Planet of the Apes', 'Star Wars', 'Alien' & 'Star Trek'. Key literary works also feature from such luminaries as Arthur C. Clarke & Robert Heinlein. In recent years, SF in comics has become ever more prevalent & completing this section of the museum is our special 'Marvel Comics' gallery.
