Gamers, do we have great news for you! The National Video Game Museum is in Frisco, Texas and it is incredible. The museum is filled with everything from video games from the past to how they developed over time to what video games could look like in the future.
The museum's main mission is to gain as many physical artifacts that pertain to gaming so that others in the future can look back at how far technology has come. The museum has everything from Atari games to more Xbox games, and yes, you can play them.
The entire thing is divided into sections and some are even made to look like living rooms and bedrooms so you can fully experience what it was like to play video games during the 70s to 90s. They also have a photo station depicting the video game collapse of 1983. You can also enjoy a fully stocked 80s video game arcade where you can play to your heart's desire.
They also have attractions such a giant Gameboy, statues from all your favorite video games and game-themed furniture.
There is an exhibit featuring a timeline of consoles to show off the progression of gaming and they even have a "pre-historic" section with a giant TV where you can play a giant game of pong with your friends.
The museum is open every day except for Mondays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and until 8 p.m. on weekends.
Tickets are only $12 a day for adults but you can always purchase a membership to the museum for just $40. The museum does not sell tickets online yet but you will be able to get them at the door.
The National Video Game Museum is located at 8004 North Dallas Parkway.
