In an Aussie first, Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N has opened in Fed Square (and before you ask, it stands for Science Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network). That almost sounds like a real thing...
After hugely successful runs in New York, Seoul, Paris, Singapore, Beijing, Taipei and Las Vegas, it’s finally Melbourne’s chance to play.
Here’s the basic gist. Marvel has built a huge interactive exhibition, where fans can jump inside and check out things like Bruce Banner’s science lab, an Asgardian astral observatory (complete with NASA’s exoplanets program), Tony Stark’s engineering bay (with Iron Man VR flight simulators), and Captain America’s 1940s personnel file (documents!).
If you reckon you’ve got what it takes, you can also try to lift Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir. Some say only the son of Odin can lift Mjolnir. Others reckon some tradies superglued it to the floor for the purposes of the exhibition. You be the judge.
More good news? Melbourne is the first city EVER to get the S.T.A.T.I.O.N’s newest exhibitions: Black Panther, The Wasp and Thanos.
Where: Federation Square
When: Till 22 April 2018

Worked up a hero-sized hunger? There’s also a new New York-style diner and speakeasy with wraparound city views...Nice.
