Looking to the Future




Join the Museum of Science Fiction for Escape Velocity, an upcoming event that the Museum will host at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, DC, from September 1–3, 2017.


Escape Velocity is a micro-world’s fair promoting science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) education within the context of science fiction by combining the fun of fan conventions with the fascination of science and engineering festivals. Escape Velocity seeks to make a measurable, positive impact in the community by boosting informal learning opportunities about complex academic areas. Its goal is to invigorate young people with an interest in STEAM learning by creating a world-class showcase of science and technology.

Museum of Science Fiction


Based in Washington, DC, the Museum of Science Fiction is a 501c(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing a narrative on the science fiction genre across all media and its relationship to the real world. The Museum’s mission is to create a center of gravity where art and science are powered by imagination. Science fiction is the story of humanity: who we were, who we are, and who we dream to be. The Museum will present this story through displays, interactivity, and programs in ways that excite, educate, entertain, and create a new generation of dreamers.


In the first step to fulfilling the Museum’s mission, our team will construct a Preview Museum in the Washington, DC metro region where we can test exhibit concepts, programs, and interactive technologies. This will give visitors a place to provide feedback that will help shape the development process for our full-scale facility. The Preview Museum will also allow us to share how interactive exhibits can be used as educational tools in conjunction with classroom materials that teachers can integrate into their daily lesson plans.
