New Durham Museum exhibit highlights America’s love of superheroes
OMAHA, Neb. (Nebraska) — The Durham Museum’s newest exhibit opens Saturday, celebrating America’s love of superheroes.
It’s called the Hall of Heroes and combines history and science to explore how superheroes influence pop culture.
The exhibition features life-size statues of the Hulk, Batman, Superman and other heroes.
There is even a full-size replica of the iconic Batmobile and Batcave from the 1960s.
Interactive stations also allow visitors to test their heroic abilities.
“For us, it was where we could talk about pop culture and history on a topic that might be relevant to a lot of people. So we feel like grandparents can talk to their grandchildren – it was just as exciting then as it is now,” said Jessica Brammer, director of public relations for the Durham Museum.
Along with the exhibit, the museum will host special events such as Superhero Saturdays for Kids and Superhero Night 21+.
The Hall of Heroes is open until April.
