Steve Sansweet is a bit of a rebel among hardcore Star Wars collectors. While many afficianados will specialise in a single type of memorabilia — Rob Foster’s 2000-piece set only includes figurines for example — Sansweet will pick up anything from the series for curation in his massive, 300,000-piece museum, Rancho Obi-Wan.
Rancho Obi-Wan is located in Northern California just outside of Sonoma, about an hour North of San Francisco. The 836sqm facility reportedly houses “35 years of Star Wars treasures from all over the world, from movie-used props to tubes of toothpaste.” Tours cost a staggering $US200 for two people, but they are led by Sansweet himself and last anywhere from one to three hours depending on how many obscure questions you feel like peppering him with.
