Comic-Con Museum

Comic-Con International (Comic-Con), a 501(c)3 nonprofit, is opening the Comic-Con Museum in San Diego’s Balboa Park. This new cultural attraction will encourage an appreciation of comics and related popular arts through exhibitions, performances, educational programs, and outreach efforts.

The Comic-Con Museum will be a year-round operation, manifesting the same values of accessibility, curiosity and appreciation that have driven the organization’s world-famous conventions. Through exhibits that refresh frequently and consistently, and programs that offer opportunities to learn, experience, and participate, the Museum will continue to build awareness and appreciation for the valuable contribution of popular culture. The Museum will be visitor-focused, whether a Comic-Con fan or a member of the general public and will provide engrossing experiences that engage curiosity and inspire learning.

Thank you, CC Museum for your spotlight on Batman!
Shows led up at 4 PM and they said they closed the line. Drove in 2 hours of traffic to get turned down by a rude woman. This place is bogus
I had an absolutely wonderful time at The Gathering at the Comic Con Museum last night. I was initially a bit disappointed when I arrived at the after party to find out no one else would have access to the VR experience (due to overbooking), the feature I had been most excited about trying out. However, upon discovering this, someone named Lisa (not sure if she was a staff member or a volunteer) apologized for the way that particular part of the event has been handled and took me aside to point out the different things that were available. She even caught up with me later in the night to make sure I was having fun and see if I had any other questions. The time she took to acknowledge the oversight and to remedy with other fun activities was deeply appreciated. The variety and quality of things already on display was excellent, and I look forward to seeing it develop over the next two years.
First in line at "The Batman Experience" at The Comic Con Museum in Balboa Park...Woohoo!!!...wait...what...we need a ticket! Poop.
Anyone have an extra pass for the Comic-Con Museum Fundraiser that I can buy? Tonight. (Wed). Not sure how I missed getting one.
Will Comic Con Museum merchandise be available to purchase during the after party? Super psyched!
What kind of exhibits are in the museum? There should be one for fans once in a lifetime experiences. Such as in 2012 a woman at the Big Bang panel won a trip into space. In 2011 I wore a T-shirt saying how much I would love to meet Steven Spielberg, he saw it when I was about to ask a question in the QnA line at the Adventures of Tin Tin panel and invited me up onto stage with him and Peter Jackson.
