The exhibit "Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes" was initially going to close on Labor Day, Sept. 2, but the Franklin Institute announced Wednesday afternoon that the closing date has been extended due to popularity and demand.
The museum revealed that the superheroes exhibit is the second most successful summer exhibit in its history. 2007's "King Tut" remains at No. 1.
The new closing date for the exhibit is Wednesday, Sept. 11. In addition, the exhibit is now open daily from 9:30 a.m. until 8 p.m., with last entry at 6:30 p.m. Tickets, $15-$35 per person, can be purchased here.
"Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes" features more than 300 original artifacts, including some of Marvel's most iconic costumes, props and original art.
