The Strong National Museum of Play reviews
It was really fun. My 6yrs old daughter really enjoyed playing. The staff are really nice and helpful.I would definitely recommend going there to my friends and family. I’m even planning on back. more »
Really enjoyed out visit. Easy parking, and a great place to take the kids. Lots of hands on activities - which we skipped due to Covid, but will visit again, and hopefully we can touch things then. more »
What an experience! My wife and I had so much fun. The nostalgia this place evokes is unlike anything you could possibly imagine. There's so much to do and so much to see. The pinball and video game arcades are absolutely amazing and play only costs a quarter per machine! The butterfly garden was as serene and beautiful as you could hope for. We went just the two of us, but we definitely plan to return and bring our three granddaughters.
It's great to see that there is an organization dedicated to preserving games. Game preservation is extremely important moving forward because it is a part of our history now and having an archive of games to learn from is important for future game designers. Also, preserves the games by allowing people to have fun and interact with the games. Essentially, it doesn't forget what makes games so unique which is their interactivity.
