World Video Game Hall of Fame Celebration Weekend
at The Strong® Museum
May 6 & 7

Celebrate the newly inducted video games and revel in a weekend with activities themed around past inductees such as Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Mario Bros. during World Video Game Hall of Fame Celebration Weekend at The Strong museum on Saturday, May 6 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, May 7 from 1 to 4 p.m.

Meet and pose for pictures with the speedy Sonic and craft your favorite 8-bit-style video game characters, such as Link and Mario, out of paper. Don’t miss your chance to play in a real-life video game by going on an interactive quest through the museum to unlock clues based on the 12 must-see artifacts featured in The Strong Museum Guide app, such as Pong, a 2015 World Video Game Hall of Fame inductee.
