GSM Project, the experience and exhibition designer, has announced that its blockbuster Star Wars exhibition is now open in Toyko.

GSM Project is pleased to announce that its exhibition on the pop-culture favourite franchise is now open for visitors at Warehouse TERRADA in Tokyo. Star Wars Identities: The Exhibition first went on show in Canada in 2012 and has since been hosted in 12 cities around the world.

The exhibition dives deep into the Star Wars universe, with a huge collection of over 200 items. Props, costumes and more are on display, from the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art. Visitors to the interactive space can explore the world of Star Wars and find out what kind of character they would be. They will also learn interesting scientific facts along the way.

A closer look at human identity

The exhibition examines the journeys of Luke and Anakin Skywalker, one of the most famous father and son duos. It looks at how their identities are developed from childhood to adulthood, and in doing so uses the Star Wars universe to explore the topic of human identity.

To bring the Star Wars collection and the scientific content together, GSM created a unique interactive experience. Visitors are invited to create their own unique Star Wars character. During their journey through the exhibition, guests wear an electronic wristband as they explore interactive environments and answer questions about their own identity. Once they reach the end, their hero is revealed. They can even share this with others directly via social media.

Discover the Star Wars universe

The exhibition is filled with original, authentic content that Star Wars fans of all ages will enjoy. It also asks deeper questions about what identity means and invites visitors to consider this through its three key themes: Origins, Influences, and Choices.

Earlier this year, GSM Project announced the opening of a new pavilion at the Al Shindagha Museum in Dubai. The Perfume House pavilion used to be the home of perfumer Sheikha Shaikha Bint Saeed Al Maktoum. The heritage building holds a large collection, including a 3,000-year-old local incense burner.
