New Indianapolis Museum

According to the Indianapolis Business Journal, Superhero collector Dane Nash has secured permits to open an American Superheroes Museum downtown.

The Fishers resident has one of the world's largest collections of superhero memorabilia and plans to display items—including a Batmobile and costumes worn by every actor who has played Superman—in the 3,200-square-foot space, which once housed Kipp Brothers.

Nash, 52, hopes to open the museum and a small gift shop in the spring, says the report in today's IBJ Daily. The museum is on Louisiana Street across from Union Station. Admission would cost $5, but children under 8 and "real-life heroes," such as firefighters, police officers and members of the military, would get in free.
