I took my kids to this amazing interactive exhibit yesterday and they loved it. They started off making their own capes and masks and then they flew off at record speed to explore. I could barely get them off the Sky Slider (zip line), but when I did, they realized there was so much more to discover. They loved watching themselves on TV in the Wind Tunnel and seeing themselves fly through the air. My five-year-old daughter challenged herself in the “laser beam” rope maze, while my seven-year-old son created his own comic strip on a giant magnetic story board.
Even outside the exhibit itself, you will see the super hero theme throughout the entire museum. There is a STEM lab research area, Super Cycles to test super strength by pedaling, and even the amphitheater has super hero costumes to dress up with a super hero back drop. With a Mini Heroes toddler area, there truly is something for everyone.
The exhibit goes on all summer, highlighting real-live heroes that have shown bravery and courage throughout history all the way to the present. From Medieval Heroes to Superhero Dads; from Military Heroes to Olympic heroes, they have it all covered! Check the schedule to see which heroes will be visiting each week.
The exhibit was created with the idea that every child is superhero and that by believing in themselves they can make a difference in the world. Suit up, come on down and discover your superpowers!
