On Sunday, August 1, “The Lord of the Ring Motion Picture Trilogy—The Exhibition” will make its U.S. Premiere at the Museum of Science, Boston!

Now that The Democratic National Convention (being held only two blocks away) is winding down, tickets are going fast for the opening weekend. The Members’ Only Preview Day on Saturday July 31st is over 90% sold.

You can still be one of the first to see the exhibit in North America! On opening day, August 1st, the Museum will open very early 12:01 a.m. and visitors are encouraged to come in costume. Additionally, on the first day, from 12:01 – 8:45 a.m. tickets will be $5 only! (Regular adult tickets for the rest of the run are $19. Big savings!) Plenty of tickets available from 1:15 AM to 8:00 AM. (For those who want to view the exhibit with few distractions or crowds, the best times to attend are between 2:30 AM and 6:30 AM.)

Also on August 1, Lawrence Makoare (the actor who played “Lurtz” – the chief Orc the first film and “Gothmog” and “The Witch King” in the third movie) will be at the Museum of Science from 7 – 9 a.m. Get an autograph on a FREE Lord of the Rings poster or get your photo taken with the big Orc!
