OI MELBS: Get Around This Seriously Ridiculous Marvel S.T.A.T.I.O.N Exhibit

If you’re in any way a fan of the blessed Marvel Cinematic Universe, they of the bi-annual blockbuster films that manage to make money hand-over-fist, you’re gonna want to pay attention to this.

Melbourne has just seen the arrival of Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N., a giant interactive and immersive exhibition designed to put you right into the heart of the Marvel world.

Those of you who have to catch a train between Flinders Street and Richmond will have no doubt noticed the large structure being built near the Batman Avenue bridge on the back end of Federation Square.

That seriously large building was custom-made to house the giant Marvel exhibit, which has now opened its doors to the public in a residency that’s set to last right through to June.

The exhibit is designed to take you “beyond the movies,” putting you in a simulated training session of sorts (y’know, as much as it could ever be), with a whole mess of interactive exhibits and screens and movie props and the like for you to gawk at and froth over.



Legit, there’s actors and training videos and debrief things with Commander Maria Hill you’ve gotta go through even before you get inside the exhibition itself. It’s pretty sick.

The Melbourne iteration of the Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. (Science Training and Tactical Intelligence Operative Network for those of you keeping score at home) is larger than other versions that have done time in various cities around the world, and this one happens to feature the world premiere of Black Panther-themed exhibits, in conjunction with the recently-released flick.

Better still, if you manage to work up an appetite while you’re flitting about the place, the exhibit comes equipped with its flash pop-up eatery the Midtown Diner right next door; a New York-style diner that comes complete with a beer garden, a rooftop bar (with city views), a flash-as-heck diner-inspired menu, and a whole mess of sly nods to the MCU dotted throughout.

Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. is located behind Federation Square – follow the signs along Birrarung Marr to get there – and is open every dang day of the week.

If you feel like snapping up tickets, you can get ahold of the RIGHT HERE.
