The Golden Age of Comic Book Superheroes

Saturday, Aug. 6 at Idaho State Historical Museum


There's a little superhero in all of us. That's why the Idaho State Historical Museum is inviting kids of all ages and their families to show off their high-flying, web-slinging, butt-kicking superhero skills.

The Golden Age of Comic Book Superheroes, is part of the museum's Hands on History program. Kids will have the opportunity to create their own superhero mask, will learn to lasso like Wonder Woman and will figure out how to outsmart the bad guys by following a series of supervillain riddles around the museum.

"The Golden Age of Comic Book Superheroes" accompanies the current exhibit Our Lives, Our Stories: America's Greatest Generation, by paying homage to the period spanning the 1930s to early 1950s, when the modern comic book was introduced and superheroes revolutionized pop culture.
