Play as you learn the surprising science and history behind your favorite toys and games from the present, back through each decade of the 20th century and beyond. Challenge your friends to a life-size classic board game, test your knowledge of video game music, and master the robotic arm. If you’re feeling generous, you could even bring the kids.
