Hall of Heroes

Saturday 9 September – Sunday 3 December 2023

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No! It’s a Hall of Heroes!

Superheroes have taken over Upper Hutt at the new international exhibition Hall of Heroes at Whirinaki Whare Taonga. This interactive hands-on adventure invites you to explore the world’s superheroes including Batman, Superman, Iron Man, Black Panther, Wonder Woman and more, and discover your own superpowers. Journey through the world of crime-fighters and gadgets, movie props, replicas and rare artifacts from past and present major motion pictures and television shows, including a replica of the George Barris 1966 Batmobile. Come face to face with life sized statues from the superhero universes, including Dr. Who’s Tardis and Batman on his rooftop and test your own superhero skills through a series of interactive stations.

Hall of Heroes is created by Stage Nine Exhibitions and toured by EDG.

Hall of Heroes is exclusively at Whirinaki Whare Taonga.
