Museum Secrets

Museum Secrets is an exclusive, behind-the-scenes opportunity for invited upper-level members, donors, and special guests to tour spaces at The Strong seldom seen by the public. 

This year’s spring events will be offered March 19, April 23, and May 14.

Guests will enjoy an exclusive tour of the future Toy Halls of Fame gallery, where high-tech renovation is underway in anticipation of a September grand opening, as well as  explore the museum’s exhibit and fabrication workshops. This special sneak peek will feature an extraordinary glimpse into the inner-workings of exhibit development at The Strong.

Guided by the museum’s team of curators and historians, participants will learn more about the National Toy Hall of Fame selection process and try to predict this year’s nominees as they enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres. Artifacts from The Strong's world-renowned collection of toys, dolls, and games will be on view for inspiration.

To enjoy the benefits of Leading, Sustaining, or Benefactor membership, contact the membership team at or 585-263-2700 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
