  • Rochester: The Strong National Museum of Play Admission

    2. Rochester: The Strong National Museum of Play Admission

    Discover a world of play at The Strong National Museum of Play - the ultimate play destination for children of all ages and upstate New York's largest year-round cultural attraction. Experience 2 floors of dynamic, interactive exhibit spaces spread through an area that is as big as a city block. See the world's largest collection of toys, dolls, games, and electronic games. Visit the National Toy Hall of Fame, World Video Game Hall of Fame, and Dancing Wings Butterfly Garden.

    A lot of people which made us feel walking in it would be a mad house. Not the case. Our granddaughter had no issues with what her and her friend wanted to do. No waiting at all. We all got hungry and went to the atrium and I felt the food was very reasonably priced.

    The guide Micol was very nice and professional, also she gave us some tips during the trip. The hotel in Niagara Falls was regular with bad breakfast. Only 1,5 hour in the outlet, it is not enough. The bus is not very comfortable. But the tour is totally worth it.

I am really glad to have taken the trip and this agency did a very good job. While it is a long drive from NYC, the coach bus made the travel as good as possible + there was a stop every 2 1/2 hours. The places we stopped for lunch were quality restaurant/grocery stores. So all palette or cost was able to be accommodated. There was also a very interesting stop and walk at Watkins Glen Statepatk. The time spent at Niagara was very good and there was good amount of time for walking, looking and photos. Hotel was strictly for sleeping and was fine. The shopping was alright and did give some free time to walk and stretch. In total, I was happy I made this selection. I was a single. It was accommodating to all ages, nationalities.

We got there at opening and stayed til closing and still needed more time! We tried the beer made on site and enjoyed it very much. It will be ever better when the Covid-19 threat is over and you can go in the buildings without waiting. Personally I wouldn't take small children because there isn't much for them, but we did see several strollers so it can be done. Great for school age kids. I attended with both of my boys when they went on school trips. They loved it!

It was a beautiful place and like nothing I've ever seen before! It was really interesting being able to talk to the various actors who were very knowledgeable about their trades. I learned a lot more than I expected to, and I can't wait to visit again! I recommend checking out the sweets shop - absolutely delicious cookies!

Great place for my grandkids I think I had more fun than them

Fabulous- the best part was the knowledgeable interpreters.
