MODS interactive exhibit explores the superhero universe
If you’ve been to the movies anytime lately, you know that superheroes are dominating the big screen.
Leave it to the Museum of Discovery and Science to help us understand why, while at the same time helping kids to discover the hero within themselves.
The Hall of Heroes traveling exhibit is about more than comic book characters, though. It also delves into the worlds of human heroes like crime-fighters and spies and their gadgets. Exploring our fascination with the superhero phenomenon — and what it really means to be a hero — the exhibit also lets visitors of all ages test their heroic abilities via challenging interactive stations.
At the museum through Sept. 2, Hall of Heroes also features a 1966 George Barris Batmobile interactive batcave environment, interactive dioramas of heroes in American culture from comics to radio and beyond, and KEVA plank-building stations with a 1989 KEVA Batmobile. There are unique photo ops, too.
For youngsters who want more superhero in their summer, MODS is also holding a Superhero Training Academy on Saturday mornings through Aug. 10. The fun-filled event for the entire family features a private exploration of the Hall of Heroes exhibit, KaBOOM! Superhero Edition Science Show, a superhero meet and greet and gadget-making, and a screening of “Super Power Dogs” in the AutoNation IMAX Theater.
MODS is at 401 SW Second St., Fort Lauderdale. For more information, call 954-467-6637 or visit www.mods.org
