“Encounters: U.F.O. Experience,” the world’s first comprehensive exhibition exploring reports of U.F.O.s, alien abductions and encounters with extraterrestrials, is now open at Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach, S.C. Presented by Intergalactic Brands, the family-friendly exhibition features seven different galleries that focus on areas such as ancient alien encounters, the military’s role in modern sightings, and pop culture’s fascination with extraterrestrial life.
Unique and extraordinary, much of the Encounters exhibition content was gathered from the private collections of UFOlogists from around the world. There are displays of original and replica artifacts, conceptual models, and documented film clips and recordings that support claims of ancient encounters through modern day sightings. Replicas and models include the famous Easter Island statues and Egyptian Hieroglyphic tablets reporting extraterrestrial sightings. The exhibition also explores the mysteries of Area 51 and Roswell, and features authentic video and audio recordings of people reporting alien encounters.
“We are especially excited about debuting this exhibition at Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach,” said Brian Bouquet of The Event Agency, the company responsible for developing Encounters: U.F.O. Experience. “Myrtle Beach has quite the reputation for U.F.O. sightings and had more than 50 just last year. Here – and around the world – people have been fascinated with the idea of alien encounters for centuries. So Myrtle Beach is the logical choice to be the first stop on what we expect to be a worldwide tour.”
The opening day of Encounters was enhanced by the participation of respected nuclear physicist and UFOlogist Stanton Friedman who toured the exhibition; was interviewed by radio, TV and print media; and delivered a lecture entitled “Flying Saucers and Science.”
“It is a genuine honor to have someone of Stanton’s stature here for the opening of Encounters,” said Bouquet. “Stan’s an expert on Area 51, and was the original civilian investigator of the Roswell Incident. He is also well-known for his many lectures around the world, as well as his testimony to the U.S. Congress and the United Nations on the topic of U.F.O.s and his authoritative books. It’s been a thrill for U.F.O. enthusiasts to get an opportunity to meet one of the giants in the field of U.F.O.s and we were really honored to have him with us.”
