In The Strong’s Field of Play exhibit senses are delighted by interactive and creative-play activities, and hundreds of fascinating artifacts that illustrate the six major elements of play: anticipation, surprise, pleasure, understanding, strength, and poise.

Start with a three-screen multimedia presentation about the importance of play in human learning and creativity, then go hands-on in this one-of-a-kind play laboratory.

  • Walk through a giant kaleidoscope and create and view your own kaleidoscope patterns.

  • Lose all sense of proportion in the exaggerated perspective room.
  • Climb a rock wall.
  • Relax in the Jellyfish Jungle.
