Star Wars Identities: The Exhibition
What would you be if you were a character from Star Wars?
Visitors will be invited to explore their own identity and learn about the forces that shape them as they move through a series of interactive stations.
Each station will provide insights that help museum guests define a unique Star Wars character that they create and meet at the end of the exhibition.
Will your choices lead you on a path to the dark side of the Force? Are you a Wookiee Jedi Knight? Or maybe an Ewok with fighter-pilot skills?

Masters of Modern Art from the Hermitage
Groundbreaking works by the most influential figures of modern art.
Masters of Modern Art from the Hermitage presents a magnificent selection of works from the towering figures of modern art including Monet, Picasso, Cézanne, Matisse, Gauguin and Kandinsky. Drawn from the unparalleled collections of the State Hermitage Museum in St Petersburg, the exhibition captures the ebullience, idealism and confidence of artists as they freed themselves from tradition.
Exploring the origins of modern art, the bold experiments of Cézanne, and the radical innovation of artists such as Matisse and Picasso, this exhibition documents the seismic shifts that took place in European painting in the years after 1900 and encapsulates a defining moment in art history.
Don’t miss this opportunity to see rare works from the modern masters – a journey of startling colour and form, groundbreaking endeavour, and bold leaps of the imagination.
