More about the DC Super Heroes: Discover Your Superpowers Exhibit:

Enter the Hall of Justice where you can take the test to find the Super Hero you are most similar to. Then fly through the sky, use laser vision to blast robots, and punch asteroids with super-strength. You can even send and share your video to the rest of your superhero friends. Finally, visit the Crisis Scanner to get an assignment and determine the best Super Hero for the mission, or test out your x-ray vision to see potential threats!

During your visit, don’t forget to check out the City Docks. Your little super heroes can ride the waves with AQUAMAN™ and also use their problem-sovling skills to find Black Manta’s secret base.

When you visit GOTHAM CITY™ you can help BATMAN™ restore the BAT-SIGNAL™! You will need to collect clues at the Bank, Flower Shop, and Jewelry Shop in order to stop THE JOKERTM and fix the BAT-SIGNALTM. Or you can help WONDER WOMAN™ capture the Cheetah and secure stolen artifacts!

Race to the S.T.A.R. LABS™ where you can test your speed against the fastest man alive, THE FLASH™. Then, challenge your family in the GREEN LANTERN™ Circuit Challenge.

Exhibit Review

We had an absolute great time exploring the two-story Impression 5 Science Center. We were warmly welcomed by the staff and we started our visit navigating their interactive traveling exhibit DC Super Heroes: Discover Your Superpowers located on the first level where families can grab capes and be in character undergoing a fast-paced series of training to develop their super power skills. Visitors can enter this exciting exhibit through the Hall of Justice Security Scanner and work their way around different training stations. These include monitoring villain activities from the Control Center, helping Cyborg disable Black Manta’s underwater base using Sonar and electromagnetic pulse, balance training with Aquaman on wing-like fins and giant turtles, improving speed with Flash, leveling up agility with Batgirl by climbing through the laser maze at the Museum of Ancient History, practicing super skills in the Super Power Simulator and so much more!  This dynamic and engaging traveling exhibit is available until May 7, 2023.~ Bernadette Manaay – Bernadette Manaay Photography
