MYRTLE BEACH, South Carolina — “Encounters: UFO Experience,” an exhibition that explores the history of unidentified flying objects, will debut April 4 at Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach.
The exhibition will feature more than 200 original artifacts, conceptual models and documented film clips and recordings that support claims of UFOs, from ancient encounters through modern day sightings.
Seven galleries will showcase ancient alien encounters, the military’s role in modern sightings and pop culture’s fascination with extraterrestrial life. Interactive aspects of the exhibition will enable visitors to personally experience an alien abduction that is based on observations and reports from alien abductees.
“Encounters” will allow visitors to learn more about the evidence surrounding famous UFO events in places like Area 51 in Nevada and Roswell, New Mexico, and to reach their own conclusions about the many conspiracy theories around such events.
The Pop Culture gallery features props from Hollywood productions like “ET,” “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” and “Men In Black.”
The exhibition will be on the northeastern side of Broadway at the Beach in a building distinguished by a flying saucer bursting from its side.
