The Avengers' secrets, case files, and abilities are all catalogued and evaluated by the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. But, of course, not just anyone can get into S.H.I.E.L.D., that is, if S.H.I.E.L.D. really existed. However, Discovery Times Square in New York is bringing visitors the closest they'll ever get to a real life S.H.I.E.L.D. with their latest exhibition, Marvel's Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N.: The Exhibition.
The exhibition, which opens May 30, is listed as “interactive,” but It’s probably an understatement to say the exhibition is “interactive.” Discovery Times Square states that visitors of all ages will get coveted S.H.I.E.L.D. access to the official S.T.A.T.I.O.N. headquarters and read tons of intelligence files, experiments and other classified information, learn more about the scientific beginnings (i.e. accidents) that led to The Avengers, test their physicality against Captain America, map the stars to find Asgard, see Bruce Banner’s neurological changes as he transforms into the Hulk and much more. Tons of artifacts will be on display, such as the Tesseract Portal Device, Captain America’s Rebirth Pod, a hermetically-sealed Chitauri and Loki’s Scepter.
Discovery Times Square and Marvel aren’t the only big names behind this exhibition. Discovery Times Square is also collaborating with NASA, Neuroverse, Thwacke Consulting and the Science & Entertainment Exchange (a program of the National Academy of Sciences) to present this awesome – and awesomely immersive – exhibit.
Of course, describing the exhibit is one thing, but seeing it is quite another. Thankfully, Marvel S.T.A.T.I.O.N. and Victory Hill Exhibitions released some cool promotional images of the exhibit, which includes details of Tony Stark’s work on his Iron Man suits and other high-priority S.H.I.E.L.D. goodies.
With this kind of build-up, even people who aren’t hardcore Marvel fans might want to see this exhibition for themselves. If you’ve got to get your tickets for Marvel S.T.A.T.I.O.N., buy them from Discovery Times Square.
