Days out

Star Wars Identities

On Monday the boys received an early Christmas present and went to visit the Star Wars Identities exhibition at the O2. This only opened in November so I haven’t seen many reviews and was unsure of what to expect.


This is a great interactive experience for the whole family. When we arrived we were given a smart wrist band and a audio headset to help us on our quest. As we walked around the exhibition we scanned our wristbands to make choices about how our characters will develop. The audio headsets work automatically by standing near a yellow pad on the floor and gave us information about the section we were in. This links with the identify we had to create and snippets of the Star Wars films.

The force

Are you going to be on the good or bad side of the force?


As we walked around we created our own identity with the help of the smart wrist band. We got to choose lots of things like what species, job, personality, family values we wanted. As we choose we were given information about the characters this relates to in Star Wars. It is great for children to see this information from a different point of view as well. As everyone chooses different options you will come out with a completely unique character. At the end of the exhibition you are shown your character and can email it to keep.

These are our identities.


Walking through the exhibition we saw all the original props used making the Star Wars franchise. The costumes are fantastic and you also get an insight into how the characters and special effects in the movies were created. There are so many of the ships on display for you to look at as well which the boys loved.

Even if you aren’t a massive Star Wars fan you will still enjoy visiting the exhibition. It’s very reasonably priced, I paid £46 for a family ticket. It’s also very accessible, theres plenty of room for pushchairs or wheel chairs. The exhibition is on until 3rd September 2017 and I booked tickets through Love Theatre.
