Museum curator excited to bring Batman costume to Elkhart


Allen Stewart owns the Hall of Heroes Costume Museum in Elkhart.  He's been collecting memorabilia for years, but he just obtained his most prized possession this month.    

It's the Batman costume worn by Adam West in the television series that ran from 1966-1968.  "I was like a kid at Christmas," Stewart says about getting the costume.  "I just couldn't wait to tear it open."

Stewart estimates the value of the costume to be about $100,000.  He says a collector sold it to him for much less because he wanted it to be on display at the museum.  "I got the costume on Friday," Stewart says.  "The next morning, Saturday, I was still so excited I couldn't sleep.  I came out here just to look at it.  I'm still 'goose-bumpy' and everything about it.  It's just that cool."

You can call to schedule a tour of the museum by calling (574) 522-1187.
