The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is celebrating the 80th anniversary of Wonder Woman with the return engagement of the exhibit, DC Super Heroes: Discover Your Superpowers. Continuing through Sept. 26, the exhibit invites children and families to join forces with Batman, Superman Wonder Woman and other members of DC’s Justice League to battle Super-Villains.
Museum officials said the “super heroes-in-training” will develop new skills and learn the importance of teamwork at the Hall of Justice as they work side-by-side with their favorite DC Super Heroes to solve problems and catch Super-Villains in a series of fast-paced challenges.
“The characters of the DC Universe are iconic symbols of teamwork, self-discovery, strength, and justice that inspire children and families to be more than we are, and do more than we thought we could,” said Dr. Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO of The Children’s Museum. “When we combine our strengths as a team we accomplish more and can overcome our obstacles together.”
Visitors are encouraged to help Batman in Gotham City fend off The Joker who has sabotaged the Bat-Signal or work with Wonder Woman to rescue artifacts that The Cheetah stole from the Museum of Ancient History. Other activities include a quiz, in which everyone in the family can learn which DC Super Hero they most resemble. In the Hall of Justice, there is a memorable photo/video opportunity in which visitors can demonstrate their flying skills.
The DC Universe has inspired generations of kids and grownups to be more like super heroes in real life.
DC Super Heroes: Discover Your Superpowers was created by The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products in 2018 and is back by popular demand.
