A brand-new exhibition at the Children's Museum of Manhattan is set to get football fanatics of all ages stoked for Super Bowl XLVIII, and Time Out Kids dropped in for the press preview! The NFL-partnered exhibit, "You Make the Call: Learn to Be an NFL Official," gives everyone a chance to step onto the field in an NFL official's shoes. An NFL Play 60 video kiosk and interactive obstacle course demonstrate the quick thinking and physical fitness required for the job. After practicing signs and signals used in the big game, a model instant-replay system tests little ones' ability to make tough calls. Families can even pop into the Manhattan control room to get a behind-the-scenes look at where all NFL games are monitored. Click through our slide show to preview some exhibit's highlights, including a design-your-own penalty flag craft and NFL official uniforms on display.
