The National Video Game Museum…

I recently had the chance to visit the National Video Game Museum in Frisco, Texas.  The museum is located just north of Dallas at the Frisco Discovery Center.

The National Video Game Museum is only one of several attractions at the Frisco Discovery Center which also hosts the Museum of the American Railroad and the Train Topia model train layout.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from the NVG museum, but I was very impressed with my visit.

Game systems available to be played

There we all kinds of home game systems available to be played as well a small retrocade.  In fact, they give you a few tokens for the retrocade as part of your admission to the museum.

Frogger!

A couple of really cool displays showed the various versions of Frogger and their collection of boxed Activision games.

I also really enjoyed the store displays.  The one representing the video game crash of 1983-1984 brought back some not so good memories.

The great crash!

The Atari 2600 store kiosk brought back some better memories!

I was also really impressed with the display of video game related board games.  I didn’t even know this many were produced!

If you are ever in the Dallas and have a couple of hours to spare, the NVG Museum is well worth a visit!
