What can you expect at the Avengers STATION show at Science Centre Singapore? Trivia, scientific knowledge, real costumes from the movies and plenty of opportunities for selfies!

SINGAPORE - For fans of Marvel's superhero movies, the Avengers exhibition opening at the Science Centre tomorrow (Oct 29) is your chance to geek out.

Singapore's edition of Marvel's Avengers STATION - which stands for Scientific Training And Tactical Intelligence Operative Network - will be the biggest yet, at over 2,000 square metres and with displays chosen from the previous four editions of the show, the organisers said.

The exhibition - which has had runs in New York, Seoul, Paris and Las Vegas - will run from tomorrow to March 5, 2017.

So, what can you expect at the show? Plenty of interaction with exhibits and with an app that you can download free on your smartphone.

AsiaOne was able to experience the show before its opening, and we had a blast.

Visitors to the show take up the role of STATION recruits and train to join the Avengers. The exhibition feeds Avengers trivia and information about the science behind these heroes to recruits.

Always wanted to know why the Hulk is green? There's a "hypothesis" here that's not even in the movies.

What makes Captain America great? Well, his brain was apparently also enhanced when he underwent the transformation that changed him from a sickly kid into a super soldier.

There's a Tesseract portal device at the show that you can activate with your palm print...
...But, unfortunately for Hiddleston fans, Loki will not walk through a portal to the show.
You'll have to be satisfied with his costume, which is making its debut at a STATION show.

Apart from games you can play, like testing your reflexes and strength against Captain America's, you'll also be able to see real costumes from the movies as well as preserved specimens of the alien invaders who wrecked havoc in New York (The Avengers) and Greenwich (Thor: The Dark World).

Geek out to the towering Hulkbuster Iron Man armour at the show - it's over 3m tall.

You really need to stand beside it to understand how big it is.
No, these are not 12-inch toys.

A tip for people going to the show: Use the app and take plenty of selfies! That's part of the fun for this show.

Before going home, don't forget to pick up some merchandise that you can add to your Avengers collection!

Tickets for the show are $30 for adults and $22 for children (3 to 12 years old). Singaporeans and PRs pay $25 per adult and $18 per child. The show runs daily from 10am to 6pm.
