You never know which princesses or superheroes you might greet when checking out the Volo Museum during Princess and Superhero Day, which this year will be Saturday, March 25.

"This is a fan-favorite event," said Jim Wojdyla, marketing director of the museum. "What better way to kick off spring break than with a fun family outing to see all of our amazing exhibits -- as well as capture some memorable moments with caped crusaders and more from Costumers With a Cause and the Fairytale Birthday Co.?"

 

Not only that, but children ages 12 and younger who arrive in their favorite superhero or princess costume also will receive free admission to both the Volo Museum and Jurassic Gardens, Wojdyla said.

"Families, and especially kids, really enjoy interacting with the cosplayers, who will make special appearances all day," Wojdyla said. "But we highly recommend being here between noon and 3 p.m., as that is typically when they are here in their largest numbers."

Volo Museum also features hundreds of vintage, muscle, Hollywood and bizarre cars, plus an eye-popping array of mechanical marvels and more. The more recently added indoor, animatronic dinosaur park -- Jurassic Gardens -- is both educational and awe-inspiring.

During the Princess and Superhero Day event, food trucks featuring pierogi and other Polish delicacies, as well as a purveyor of doughnuts, also will be on-site for some added fun, Wojdyla said.
