We at Collider have an exclusive look at some props and costumes that will be on display at the Marvel: Universe of Super Heroes exhibition that opens later this month. The exhibition will debut at Seattle’s Museum of Pop Culture (MoPOP) and opens to the public on April 21st, running through January 6, 2019 at MoPOP.

In the exhibition, fans will get to experience larger-than-life recreations of Marvel characters, exclusive original artwork, state-of-the-art interactive experiences, photo ops, and much more. Additionally, a treasure trove of props and costumes from the last 10 years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe offer a closer look at items ranging from Thor’s hammer to Luke Cage’s hoodie. And if that wasn’t enough, the exhibition also features plenty of comics memorabilia, including the only known surviving piece of original production art from the very first Marvel comic.

Below you can get a tiny preview of the exhibition in these exclusive prop and costume images, including Shur’s Black Panther costume, Iron Man’s suit, Captain America’s Avengers: Age of Ultron suit, a bust of Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy, and more.
