Happiest Hour Returns
to The Strong® Museum
on December 12


ROCHESTER, NY—Adults age 21 and older are invited to come in from the cold for The Strong’s holiday-themed Happiest Hour, presented by Simon Business School, on Thursday, December 12 from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. All proceeds from this event support The Strong’s educational mission and community outreach programs.

Happiest Hour

Take part in an ugly sweater contest and sing along during “fireside” karaoke. Enjoy a sampling of bar-style snacks courtesy of Salena’s Mexican Restaurant and cash bars featuring the local beers of Roc Brewing Co. and other craft beer options. Compete in a round of supermarket sweep-style game in Wegmans Super Kids Market with Simon Business School. Create a custom t-shirt with Imprintable Solutions, Ink (additional cost). Show off your best moves during a dance party with DJ Naps from BreakThrough Entertainment.

Journey around the museum and play through two floors of interactive exhibits. Leap into the world of superheroes in American Comic Book Heroes: The Battle of Good vs. Evil, play classic arcade games in eGameRevolution and Pinball Playfields, and step up to a 20-foot bubble tower in Toy Halls of Fame. Admission to Dancing Wings Butterfly Garden is only $3 per person during Happiest Hour. (Entry to the garden ends at 8:40 p.m. The butterfly garden closes at 9 p.m.)

Current museum members can purchase tickets for $12.
