Tellus Museum: Night at the Museum (8/6/2011)

Posted in Events on August 7th, 2011 by Samurai

On Saturday we headed out to the Tellus Museum for their “Night at the Museum” event. It was a long event with arrival @ 4PM and running R2 until 10PM. The crowds were big and fun was had by all. These picture don’t do the crowds any justice, as I believe they were all taken before the doors opened and when they were closing as you could not get a clear picture of R2 with all the people.

R2 didn’t take too much damage from the event, even though he did take a real beating at times. Lots of kids liked to jump out in front of R2 while he was moving. We had a” photo booth” set up so we could swap out droids running around the museum while the other droid sat and “rested” giving better photo ops. The photo above shows a diluted line for the R2 photo area. At one point I saw about 60 people waiting in line for Sandtrooper autographs.
