Are your Spidey senses tingling?

the Comic-Con Museum opens a new exhibit, “Marvel’s Spider-Man: Beyond Amazing – The Exhibition,” on July 1, and as befits hosting a superhero, is set to close in June to prepare.

“We knew that some large installations might require the museum to be closed for a period of time,” said Rita Vandergaw, the museum’s executive director. “The planned closure will allow us to dedicate the many resources needed to bring this premier exhibit to life.”

Some ongoing exhibits in the Balboa Park attraction will close, she said, but “Eight Decades of Archie” and “Dave Stevens – Art for Arf’ Sake” will return and the museum will be open seven days a week for a limited time.

The “Spider-Man” exhibition will include interactive installations and an extensive collection of wonder artifacts from the past six decades, from original comic book art and animation material to feature length motion picture productions. Other material includes information about the creators who have contributed to “Spider-Man” over the years and glimpses into the superhero’s future.

Advance tickets are on sale and can be obtained at Fever. General admission starts at $30.

The “Spider-Man” exhibit will remain on display through the end of the year with related programming and other special events planned.
