New Hall of Heroes Exhibit

Fort Lauderdale, Fl – Step into the world of superheroes, crime-fighters, gadgets, and spies in this new immersive experience. Learn the circumstances that create superheroes, discover the ideals that heroes uphold, and push the boundaries as to what it truly means to be heroic at the Museum of Discovery and Science’s new traveling exhibition, Hall of Heroes, sponsored locally by Nicklaus Children’s Health System. The ribbon cutting event will be held Friday, May 17th at 10:30 a.m. and the exhibit will be open through September 2, 2019.

Hall of Heroes celebrates and explores both the history of and science behind America’s fascination with superheroes and how they impacted our popular culture throughout the 20th century and beyond. Visitors of all ages are encouraged to explore, learn, and test their heroic abilities at engaging and challenging interactive stations. 

“We are thrilled to introduce Hall of Heroes at the Museum of Discovery and Science to kick off the summer. The exhibit will excite everyone who has grown up watching superhero movies or reading the comics. Parents and children alike will enjoy traveling through the decades of superheroes all while discovering superpowers of their own,” said Joseph P. Cox, Museum President and CEO.

“Wearing scrubs instead of capes and armed with medical knowledge as a superpower, our team of superhero pediatric nurses, therapists, physicians, and surgeons are committed to the health and safety of all children.  The exhibit is a great opportunity for children to learn, have fun and discover the science behind becoming a superhero,” said Michael Kushner, Senior Vice President and Chief Talent Officer, Nicklaus Children’s Health System.
