The Dark Knight is marking 75 years of fighting crime in Gotham City, and the children's museum here in the Circle City celebrated the occasion by giving Eyewitness News an inside look at their collection of Bat-artifacts.

The Children's Museum of Indianapolis has hundreds of pieces related to Batman including comic books, props and even the actual stunt cape worn by Adam West in the TV series.

"We've got a lot of toys as well as things that are actually screen-used, things that were drawn by the comic book cartoonists," said Chris Carron, collections director for the Children's Museum. "So it's a great mixture of the pop culture that we all can own as well as some really extraordinary things that only the Children's Museum can have."

The Batman collection isn't on display right now, but the museum plans to showcase the items in future exhibits.
