The US version of the Art of Star Wars exhibit, called the Science of Star Wars, will be travelling around the US until at least late 2008. There was a small post about it on SW.com when it opened in Boston. I am not sure how much it is like the AOSW exhibit as I think it tries to link real world science to SW rather than just display the props, costumes, & art. Regardless it's probably the only opportunity to see SW props in the US.
