After a super successful start in Seattle with over 350,000 visitors, we sent Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes on tour to its next stop in the US and Canada with over 700,000 happy visitors so far.

Curated by renowned comic professor Benjamin Saunders along with a team of experts from the comic book, fashion and entertainment industry, the international exhibit honors both: the creators behind the myths and the fans who sustain them. The spatial, visual, and immersive language of the show reflects their visions and creations and takes visitors on a journey through a walkable 3D comic book.

Combining the art and history that shape the Marvel universe and its influence on global pop culture, the exhibit features famous artifacts and original art, numerous movie props, spectacular sculptures, as well as immersive and interactive exhibits. Visitors can follow the process from idea to art on different layers of storytelling and experience Marvel’s fantastic creative output from both, the consumers’ and the creators’ side.
