One of the world’s hottest superheroes is coming to Houston to delight and thrill area children as part of the Children’s Museum of Houston’s “Super Powered Summer.” Black Panther, King of Wakanda, will visit the museum on Saturday, June 2nd beginning at 10:00 a.m. Black Panther’s visit is made possible by a partnership with Majic 102, 97.9 The Box, and Radio Now 92.1 FM.

T’Challa’s visit will include a host of activities fit for the King of Wakanda. At 10:30, the museum will host an African drumming session in the Kids’ Hall Alcove. Children and adults alike will be energized by the rhythmic pulse of a full drum circle, complete with superhero-themed surprises.  Black Panther himself will be on hand all day between 10am and 5pm in the kids alcove to take pictures with lucky area kids (and likely a few adults, too).

The Children’s Museum of Houston’s “Super Powered Summer” is a special summer exhibit designed to help kids save Houston from a dull and boring summer. The museum has created a wide range of activities and exhibits to help kids gear up and train to combat the forces of evil as their own superheroes. Kids can create superhero bookmarks in the museum’s Alexander Art Academy, create Black Panther masks and Captain America-inspired shields in the Junktion area, and even learn about how the human body’s muscles enable superheroes to fight evildoers in the Science Station.

Black Panther’s visit and the other “Super Powered Summer” activities are all included with the price of general museum admission. Tickets are $12 per person, $11 for seniors and military personnel, while children under one years old get in free. Museum Members receive free admission.
