Make this September Super at Discovery Place Kids-Huntersville

Discovery Place Kids Huntersville

POW! ZAP! BAM! Discovery Place Kids-Huntersville is a super place to have fun with your kids and enjoy hands-on learning and play. This September, we will fly into the amazing world of superheroes. Journey with us as we explore the science behind some of our favorite heroes' (and villians') powers.

On weekdays at 11:15 a.m., stop by the Town Hall Stage for special story times and activities that will help unlock the superhero in everyone.

  • Tuesdays & Thursdays- How to Be a Superhero: Do you have what it takes to be a superhero? We'll read Superhero Instruction Manual by Kristy Dempsey to discover the super powers we already have! (additional program on Tuesdays at 1:45 p.m.)
  • Wednesdays & Fridays- Comic Book Mania: Comic books are how superheroes first become popular! We will learn how to sequence events and become artists as we explore comic book examples during this program.

All weekend long in September, discover your inner superhero at the Museum by looking at the ways regular people can be superheroes, too. Activities below start at the Town Hall Stage with a special story at 11:15 a.m. and 1:45 p.m. on Saturdays and at 1:45 p.m. on Sundays.
