Opening just in time for school break, the Strong National Museum of Play is debuting a new exhibit that explores cool facts from each of the 50 states. Designed in the style of the iconic Trivial Pursuit game by Hasbro, the exhibit contains dozens of interactive stations designed to spark curiosity. While the exhibit will run through the end of May and includes tidbits from all 50 states, this week's opening celebration has a more local focus. Children (and the young at heart) will have a chance to learn about the Finger Lakes Region's odd geography, answer trivia questions on a giant magnetic Rochester map, and test their knowledge of the 50 states and capitals. Take this break from desk-and-paper learning to engage young bodies and minds in a different way.
Strong National Museum of Play will celebrate the opening of "Trivial Pursuit: A 50 State Adventure" from Saturday, February 14, through Saturday, February 22. (The exhibit is up through May 10). 1 Manhattan Square. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. $13.50 (general admission; under age 2 free) museumofplay.org
