The opportunity to become Special Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. at the Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. Exhibition at Discovery Times Square and experience first-hand the wonders of the Marvel Avengers, plus the science behind the supernatural is a not-to-miss experience.
Our adventure started with creating a cool S.H.I.E.L.D. card. This was our identification card that specified that we were certified members of S.H.I.E.L.D and ready to start our training. It had our name, birth date and date of training. The card was used for exploring the different stations and it allowed you navigate through the scientific exploration of the wonders of Marvel.
Now we were ready to train to become special agents. The exhibit is filled with interactive fun and games. The Exosuit Flight Simulator was my favorite. I was able to suit up, fly and feel what it’s like to be Iron Man. Other great activities included exploring the planet Asgard, Thor’s planet, testing my gamma radiation vulnerability (how Hulk was born), and comparing my strength with Captain America.
Superhero costumes and accessories are displayed including Captain America’s shield, Black Widow’s costume, Iron Man’s suit and cool others. This exhibit would be best described as the “Avenger’s Museum.”
It’s fun for all ages and it took us about an hour to explore.
My 10-year-old son summed it up as “an amazing experience and I felt really involved with superheroes." Both my boys love superheroes. My younger son could identify most superheroes by 2-years-old, even before he learned his ABC’s. Their only disappointment was that Thor's hammer was not on display.
If you love superheroes this exhibit will not disappoint.
