Model of the Millennium Falcon

"Star Wars" fans who want to get a close-up look at some of the films' original history should make their way to Silicon Valley before February.

This weekend, the Tech Museum of Innovation begins showcasing "Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination," an exhibit that has been traveling the country for the last eight years and is now making its final stop, almost in George Lucas' backyard.

Visitors to the show, which runs through February 23, 2014, will get an up-close view of 70 original artifacts from the six "Star Wars" movies, including costumes, models, props, and more.

This model of the Millennium Falcon was used in "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope."
