Science-fiction museum to open in Washington, D.C.
Fans of Captain Kirk and Captain Nemo unite: A new science-fiction museum coming to Washington, D.C.
Its creators announced plans for the museum, which will cover a broad sampling of science fiction across literature, television, film, music, video games and art, on Nov. 4. They hope to open a preview space within a year, and launch the full museum in the beginning of 2017.
“There really wasn’t a comprehensive science-fiction museum here in the United States or internationally,” said Greg Viggiano, executive director of the new venture. “I thought, maybe somebody should do something about this,” Viggiano told LiveScience.
