We had a fantastic time at the National Museum of Play! We took advantage of a Canadian school holiday to cross the border and travel to Rochester, New York.

This is a fantastic place for families with lots of wonderful places for playing all day. When we visited, there was a special exhibit on the history of Nintendo!  There are lots of arcade, pinball, and other retro video games as part of the main collection as well. Over the weekend there was a Star Wars theme! There were many different themed sections that happily occupied our young and older children. The effort made to address themes and controversies (violence, gender) got a kudos from JBot and myself. Seeing some of our favourite toys from when we were kids (Jem!!!) in the collection was pretty amazing.
