Highly recommend the Strong Museum if you have kids and or teens. We had a 15 year old boy and he loved it. Especially the arcade and the ropes course. Plenty of things to keep younger kids...

This museum is a perfect place to go, it doesn’t matter if you are young or if you are older. It has all the history of all the games we’ve been using growing up. The museum is super clean and organized. It has a lot of activities that you can do including the observatory and the ticket machines that you can play on. I’ve been there twice and I really enjoyed the college nights they would do. It was amazing to learn and enjoy it with people from your school or same age.
This place is amazing. For most of us with kids it’s basically the largest indoor playground you will ever go to. There’s so much in here for the kids to play with and it’s not that busy. Despite all the kids in here it is still kept tidy and the activity areas are reasonably organized. They have a free coat check area which is very convenient. The gift shop is rather small and most contains your classic board games and some legos. Food court is pretty reasonable. The butterfly conservatory isn’t worth visiting but the rope climb is amazing. Just make sure your kids are brave enough to do it. The rest of the place is actually a museum of play. The toy displays they have on the second floor really brings out the nostalgia. The cost to play the arcade games is pretty reasonable too. I didn’t think this would be somewhere I would go visit again but I definitely want to come back someday.
