#6 – Superpowered Metropolis at the Children’s Museum of Manhattan

When: Opens February 14, 2020

What to expect: It’s a big winter at CMOM: they’re also introducing Superpowered Metropolis for its youngest guests. Designed for kids ages newborn to six and their caregivers, the 1,500-square-foot exhibit—which opens on Valentine’s Day!—lets little ones become superheroes in a colorful, comic book version of New York City. All about building brain power, kids will have the chance to climb through a treehouse, make sounds in a musical subway car and even drive a “pigeon mobile” through the city, all with the help of Zip, Zap and Zoom, a team of pigeons who will guide you along your merry way.
