In the words of JR Tolkien "Not all those who wander are lost". My passion and loves are my family, travel and writing. I'm fortunate to be able to combine all three for an extraordinary life adventure....
Visiting an art gallery with children has never been easier or more fun. The Queensland Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) is hosting the largest ever Marvel exhibition in Australia. With little under two weeks left, it is well worth a visit even for those 'minor' Marvel fans (meaning my 4 yo, and myself - a newbie in the Marvel world).
We spent half a day exploring the various rooms of the exhibition, my sons reliving the snippets of cinematic action scenes from Marvel movies they loved and others they were yet to see (including the latest Thor movie).
There is definitely something for everyone. I enjoyed viewing the various intricate designs of the costumes, props, jewellery, and other set concepts. Whilst, my boys literally marvelled at the life size statues of their favourite heroes and villains, Iron Man's various suits across the different movies, Hulk's enormous bed, and the range of lethal weaponry.
There are also various interactive components. You have the rare opportunity to locate any of the thousands of comic books written, all stored and able to be viewed digitally through purpose displayed computers.
If you didn't love Marvel before you went into the exhibition, there is no doubt you'll come out with a new appreciation of the wonders of the cinematic Marvel world. A must see!
