The Strong is a highly interactive, collections-based museum devoted to the history and exploration of play.
At The Strong, we believe that play is as essential as the air we breathe. Play boosts mental and physical health for people of all ages and is proven to make children and adults smarter, happier, and healthier. Through Powered by Play: A Campaign for The Strong, we’re creating a bigger and better museum, one that will make playful learning available to hundreds of thousands more people each year—and your support makes it all possible.Make a Donation Learn About the Expansion

Children need the freedom and time to play. Play is not a luxury. Play is a necessity.
