During Superheroes Weekend
at The Strong® Museum

Zoom in for Superheroes Weekend at The Strong museum on Saturday, March 25 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday, March 26 from noon to 4 p.m. Do-gooders unite for a weekend of character meet and greets and an array of heroic activities. 

Meet Marvel’s official Spider-Man as he swing into the museum on Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Captain America muscles in on Sunday from 12:15 to 4 p.m. Pose for a picture with a superhero at a designated time by picking up a free ticket in The Strong’s G. Rollie Adams Atrium the day of the event. One ticket per person. Tickets are available one hour prior to set appearance times while supplies last.

And all weekend long:

  • Drop into the American Comic Book Heroes: The Battle of Good vs. Evil exhibit to climb up the side of a skyscraper, absorb “gamma rays” in order to pick up a massively heavy object, maneuver through an aerial course, and more.
  • Visit with PBS Kids’ popular Super Why! and his newest “super reader” friend, Woofster.
  • Receive drawing and writing tips from professional artists and check out their original art.
  • Learn how to be a hero for the environment by joining forces with Larry the H2O Hero.
