Last week, Marvel Entertainment, in collaboration with Discovery Times Square and NASA, announced a new exhibit called "Marvel's Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N." which brings the Marvel Universe to life that will open to the public later this month. Now, some pieces of concept art for the exhibit have been released that show off the "Security Check-In," "S.H.I.E.L.D. Briefing Room," "S.H.I.E.L.D. Induction Room," "Thor’s Cosmic Observatory" and the "Iron Man Workshop," which you can check out in the gallery viewer below!
"Marvel's Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N." (Scientific Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network) is a completely immersive, interactive exhibit experience that brings visitors into the world of The Avengers. Leading EdTech innovator Gamedesk created S.T.E.M. (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) based educational pathways for the exhibition, bringing to life the science behind Marvel Super Heroes and allows fans to participate in a simulated recruitment, as if they were being trained as agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Visitors of all ages are exclusively recruited to join S.H.I.E.L.D. and enter the official S.T.A.T.I.O.N. headquarters. Exhibition-goers are then taken deep into the Marvel Cinematic Universe where they will experience first-hand the vast array of intelligence files, classified studies, and experiments that explores the history and scientific origins of Marvel's The Avengers including Iron Man, The Hulk, Captain America, Thor, and others. Visitors will also be given unprecedented access to some of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s most highly guarded artifacts recovered after the Battle of New York such as Captain America's Birth Pod, the Tesseract Portal Device, Loki's Scepter, a hermetically sealed Chitauri and more.
The highly anticipated new exhibition, based on the global box-office smash film franchise: Marvel's The Avengers, will premiere on May 23, 2014 at Discovery Times Square in New York City. Tickets are on sale now.
