Rancho Obi-Wan: Star Wars Collector's Heaven


Did your invitation to the Rancho Obi-Wan Grand Opening get lost in the mail?  Yeah, mine too.  There is good news however, you can now sign up for an annual membership at Rancho Obi-Wan (ROW) to support the private Star Wars collection of Steve Sansweet that has become California Non-profit corporation and museum.

Why sign up for a Rancho Obi-Wan membership?  Well besides some cool stuff, the chance to visit Steve's collection would be any Star Wars fan's dream come true.

Rancho Obi-Wan is located in a residential area, so this won't be like your local museum where you can just show up and look around.

There are a variety of membership levels detailed below, but in addition there are also opportunities to donate and to arrange special events at ROW.  I will probably kick in for an Initiate membership in 2012, but I will have to make a trip up to Petaluma at some point with my wife for a tour, because to me it looks like Geek Disneyland.
