Museum Secrets

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

The event—offered at select times throughout the year—gives those who provide critical funding for museum exhibits, programs, and collections care the opportunity to interact with museum artifacts in a playful manner. Guests enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres as they test their curatorial skills. Guided by museum’s team of curators and historians, participants unlock the secrets of The Strong's world-renowned collection of toys, dolls, board games, video games, and other electronic games.
