Okay, forget authentic pizza or the Empire State Building. Are you planning a trip to New York City this summer? Don’t head anywhere else other than Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. Seriously, compared to this exhibit, Broadway can eat it.
Victory Hill Exhibitions is joining forces with Marvel Entertainment to create Earth’s Mightiest Exhibition entitled Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N or Scientific Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network. Enter the world the Marvel Cinematic Universe in this exhibit where you can train to become the next Natasha Romanoff.
According to the press release:
“Visitors of all ages are granted S.H.I.E.L.D. access to the official S.T.A.T.I.O.N. headquarters and taken deep into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Here they will have open access to a vast array of intelligence files, classified studies and experiments that explores the history and scientific origins of Marvel’s The Avengers. Visitors will also be given unprecedented access to some of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s most highly guarded artifacts such as Captain America’s Birth Pod, the Tesseract Portal Device, Loki’s Scepter, a hermetically sealed Chitauri and more, recovered after the Battle of New York.”
Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. is a STEM-based exhibit, (STEM standing for science, technology, engineering and mathematics.) Collaborators of the exhibit include NASA, the Science & Entertainment Exchange (from the National Academy of Sciences), Neuroverse, and Thwacke. With the help of these science organizations, visitors can map out the stars to Asgard, learn how the Iron Man suit works, see how Bruce Banner transforms into the Hulk and test if they are strong enough to best Captain America.
“To work so closely with the Marvel team on this incredible production, alongside some of the greatest scientific individuals and institutions in America, has been a real honor,” states Nicholas Cooper, the CEO and founder of Victory Hill. “With this exhibit, we are seamlessly integrating story and science to create a truly immersive edutainment environment, set within Marvel’s Cinematic Universe.”
The world premiere of the exhibit is on May 23, 2014 and runs until January 4, 2015. And if you recognize Chris Evans in a baseball cap staring longingly at his old Captain America uniform, make sure to keep that on the down-low.
