National Museum of Play is the perfect day trip for kids of all ages!

January 5, 2011

The snow is falling (and falling!). No playing outside today, so what to do? A trip to the National Museum of Play just might be the perfect answer!

The National Museum of Play in Rochester, New York is the only collections-based museum in the world devoted solely to play! The museum blends the best features of history museums (with some extensive collections) and children’s museums (with wonderful high interactivity).

So what can you look forward to on your visit?

Plus, the National Geographics MAPS: Tools for Adventure is closing on January 9, so this is  your last chance to become an explorer and learn about real-life adventures through maps, artifacts, and interactive experiences.

Museum hours are:

  • Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Friday & Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Sunday, Noon to 5 p.m.

General Admission is quite afforddable (prices do not include admission to Dancing Wings Butterfly Garden):

Adults: $12 (age 16 and over)

Seniors: $11 (age 62 and over)

Children: $10 (ages 2 to 15)

Children under age 2: FREE

For more information, call 585-263-2700 or visit the Museum online.
