Today i got a chance to go to the SkirBall Museum in LA. There were a lot of different exhibits but the two I liked the best were the Noah's Ark and ZAP! POW! BAM! The Superhero: The Golden Age of Comic Books.

The ZAP! POW! BAM! exhibit featured comic books and the history of the comic books from 1938-1950. They had the original costumes worn by the best, and most well known, superheros. Also had fun things for kids such as costume changing in a phone booth and a little area for the kids to try and draw their own comics. I am a HUGE fan of comic book art and pop art which made this exhibit heaven for me. Learning about all the artists and how they came up with the stories was amazing.

The Noah's Ark exhibit was really neat. I went with some of my little cousins because it is kinda meant for kids, but either way I thought it was really cool. I bet you all know the story of Noah's Ark, and this was basically a couple rooms with a bunch of animals made out of recycled materials and everyday objects. The animals were amazing made from everything from forks to gloves, to bottle caps. Also you could touch and play, climb and mess with all the little animals and toys the have around the rooms. I for one, had a blast.
