1. It’s cool, if you’re obsessed with the Marvel cinematic universe. Fanatics could spend hours inside the new attraction squeezed in above the CVS store at Treasure Island. Avengers gear and uniforms are everywhere, culminating in Iron Man’s hall of armor, which includes the awe-inspiring Hulkbuster suit.

2. It’s nerdy. Designed like an interactive science museum, the exhibition feels like it’s more about grown-ups than kids, with a deluge of details explaining how the superhero world works.

3. This is only the beginning. Victory Hill Exhibitions will unveil a Transformers attraction later, and officials are in discussions with Disney about expansion: Could Star Wars be coming to the Strip, too?
