For me it was some good / some bad. The bad for me was the 'Identities' element which they have as a running thread through the exhibition. This is basically a bit like a video game character creator. In each area you add a bit more to your character, and then at the end you are shown your character assembled from the handful of generic traits you have selected - pretty meaningless and a distraction from the good stuff. The good stuff being the props, costumes and models.
I think this sums it up for me in many ways... the technology and interactive part kinda sucks, but as I attended with a mate and his kid, it did keep her entertained while we looked at the props and artwork.
For me the highlight was the concept art that was dotted through the exhibit. I enjoyed seeing these first hand far more than the props.
My lowlight was the lighting; very poor and often overly reflective.
Maybe I'm thick but I thought the cards explaining what things were were a bit ambiguous? Was the Ralph Mcquarrie artwork of C3PO and R2D2 etc the actual original?
