KIDS | Superhero Weekend


Bring the kiddos to meet Spider-Man and Captain America at The Strong National Museum of Play (1 Manhattan Square) during Superheroes Weekend, which takes place Saturday and Sunday, February 9-10. Marvel Comics' official superheroes will greet museum guests and pose for pictures. The event will also include how-to-draw workshops with comic-book experts, and a variety of superhero-themed activities.

On Saturday, February 9, visitors can interact with Spider-Man 11 a.m.-3 p.m. and 3-6 p.m. Captain American will be in the house on Sunday, February 10, noon-5 p.m. On both days from noon to 4 p.m., kids can visit with PBS Kids' Princess Presto and Super Why! A variety of comic-book artists — including Michael Borkowski, who has worked on animated series including "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," "Dragon Tales," and "Scooby-Doo," and Rochester-based comic-book creator Stephen Lindsay — will share drawing and writing tips, display art, and sign autographs. In addition, visitors can explore the "American Comic Book Heroes: The Battle of Good vs. Evil" exhibit.

All Superheroes Weekend activities are included with general admission fees, which are $11-$13. For more information, call 263-2700 or visit
