DC Super Heroes at The Children’s Museum

Visitors to The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis will join forces with members of DC’s JUSTICE LEAGUE™ when they arrive in Indianapolis this summer.

Families across Indy are invited to join forces with iconic DC Super Heroes such as BATMAN™, SUPERMAN™ and WONDER WOMAN™ when they swoop into town for the DC Super Heroes: Discover Your Superpowers, an interactive exhibition that will open June 16, 2018 – November 25, 2018.


Families are encouraged to grab their capes and go on an adventure as “reserve Super Heroes-in-training.” Guests of all ages will develop new skills and learn the importance of teamwork at the HALL OF JUSTICE™ as they work together 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, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. “When we combine our strengths as a team we accomplish more and can overcome our obstacles together.”

Teamwork is just one element of success. When we challenge ourselves mentally and physically, we can gain new skills and learn more about ourselves. Just like the real world – it takes all kinds to make this super human world successful. Instead of picking apart differences, working together like THE FLASH™, GREEN LANTERN™, CYBORG™ and AQUAMAN™ do – it helps us learn to use differences for a greater good.

During this temporary exhibit, brave recruits will be called on by members of the Justice League to make the world a safer place by battling Super-Villains in the fictional, crime-infested city. Recruits-in-training will join the DC Super Heroes in solving problems and catching Super-Villains in a series of fast-paced challenges in the city and surrounding area.

Other activities include a quiz, where 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 where visitors can demonstrate their strength by lifting a building with the help of green screen technology. Visitors are encouraged to help Batman in Gotham City fight 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.

The DC Universe has inspired generations of kids and grownups to be more like Super Heroes in real life. What kind of Super Hero will you be?
