This week, a collection of toys from the Strong’s National Museum of Play took a trip to visit lawmakers in Albany.
From the classic pin-ball, to toy robots and model airplanes, the toys were brought out in the open to serve as a nostalgic reminder of childhood memories.
Senior Director of Communications, Shane Rhinewald, says this was simply meant to be informational. A way to talk about toys and their plans to expand the museum of play.
“The project we’re looking at probably a three to five year range on, so about another year before we actually do the building, but there will be several components to it,” said Shane Rhinewald, Director of Public Relations at The Strong Museum of National Play.
Rhinehold says the plans include 100,000 square feet of addition space including an entire wing dedicated to the World Video Game Hall of Fame.
