“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”

Can’t wait for the August release of Star Wars: The Clone Wars? Then head to the Space Center Houston, which has just scored “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” a bunch of cool Star Wars memorabilia, including artifacts from the Clone Wars film such as sketches, digital prints and 3-D models. The exhibit is kid-friendly — there’s a robotic R2D2 to greet and take pictures with guests — but it will interest true fans of any age with light sabers used by Anakin and Obi-Wan, and a full-size starfighter from Episode II. And since the Clone Wars exhibit is included in the admission price, you may as well check out some real spaceships while you’re there, too. 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Through September 1. 1601 NASA Parkway. For tickets and information, call 281-244-2100 or visit www.spacecenter.org. $15 to $19.
