It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane! Superheroes in Gotham Opening Weekend
Saturday, October 10th, 2015 | 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Saturday, October 10 – Monday, October 12: 12 pm–4 pm

Calling all superheroes! Answer the call and bring your super powers to our weekend of programs for junior heroes. Kids will design and wear their own wrist cuffs—will yours deflect lasers? Help you fly? Shoot webs? Get ready to defeat a super villain by joining our superhero training sessions, where participants will practice their defending and attacking skills! Then kids can decorate a super plane and fly it through the New York skyline. Make sure to pick up our Superheroes in Gotham family guide and find all six heroes in this amazing exhibition. And don’t forget to get your picture taken with the one and only Batmobile! Kids age 13 and under receive free Museum admission! 

This weekend we’re kicking off our third annual Dress Up Abe and Fred contest! Visit nyhistory.org/dchm to cast your vote for what our Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass statues will be wearing on starting October 30. This year is a superhero-only contest! Don’t forget to join us for our New-York Haunted Society: Superhero/Supernatural party and see the winning costumes.

Please contact familyprograms@nyhistory.org for more information and pricing.
