The Galaxy Connection: Star Wars

Star Wars lovers, this is a must. It's a great collection, and the addition of the superheroes makes it even better. My boys absolutely loved this place!

The Galaxy Connection

In late 2016 this attraction moved from its former out-of-the-way location to the main street of Hot Springs, just south of the baths that the town is most known for. That makes it much more convenient. Also, it is now open every day of the week. Tours used to be led by employees, but now they are self-guided -- although you can still arrange to have a VIP tour with the owner if you book ahead.

The Galaxy Connection: Star Wars

This museum is a front so they can talk to you about Jesus. But once they've done their pitch they let you roam around and take pics.

The Galaxy Connection: Star Wars Museum

A walk-through guided museum featuring Star Wars scenes, such as Darth Vader's starship, Jaba the Hut's dungeon, and Yoda's swamp home. It includes one of the largest displayed collections of vintage Star Wars toys. Lots of fun interactive stuff for the kids too!
