May the Toys Be With You

When: 18 March to 29 May
Cost: FREE
Where: Paisley Museum

On March 18th, from a galaxy far, far away comes an absolute must see for fans of Star Wars and the silver screen…

One of the UK's finest collections of vintage Star Wars toys and original cinema posters is going on display in a stunning new exhibition at Paisley Museum. 

Back when the movie Star Wars broke box office records in 1977 no one could have predicted that the merchandising would go on to earn even more than the film itself. The toys of Star Wars took the world by storm and became the must-have playthings for an entire generation. From 1977 - 1985 an estimated 300 million action figures were sold, allowing children to re-enact the adventures of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo.

 May The Toys Be With You is both a celebration of the now highly collectable vintage toy line and also of the iconic design work and art of the Star Wars movies. From X-Wing Fighters to lightsabers, these fantastical designs have fired our imaginations and stamped their place on our cultural landscape. For little kids and ‘big kids’ alike this is an unmissable opportunity to view many rarely seen Star Wars treasures.

With fun activities for all the family you won't want to miss this exciting new exhibition...appearing for the first time in Scotland.

Opening Hours:

Tues - Sat 11am to 4pm

Sun 12pm - 4pm

Closed Mondays (except public holidays)

Come and see why Star Wars has earned its place in our cultural history.
