If there is one thing you know about me, I am guessing that it is the fact that I am a HUGE Marvel fan. Movies, comic books, collectibles – you name it, I love it. So when I was given the opportunity to visit Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes at the Franklin Institute, I was ALL in! 

This exhibit is like a dream come true for me. And honestly, I was shaking walking in to it. I knew right away I was going to love every single thing in there. But you don’t have to be an die hard fan like me to enjoy it! Casual fans and collectors will love it too. Even people who don’t know much about Marvel will likely have a good time. It is a great way to learn about why these comics are… well… amazing.

Take this photo (and video) tour to see all that they have to look at.
