The Mid-America Science Museum will host the opening of its newest traveling exhibit Toytopia on Saturday, June 10. Created by Stage Nine Exhibitions, Toytopia provides an immersive and interactive experience exploring the history of some of the most popular toys of the past and present. The exhibit is located in the museum’s Hall of Wonder and is included with general admission.
“I’m thrilled that we were able to partner with Stage Nine and bring this unique and exciting exhibit to Mid-America,” said Diane LaFollette, Mid-America Science Museum’s CEO. “We all have memories of our favorite toy or game and this exhibit allows our adult visitors to rekindle that sense of wonder and share it with the next generation. Toytopia also provides an opportunity to encourage learning through play and help inspire the curiosity of our young minds.”
Running through Sunday, Sept. 3, Toytopia showcases a wide array of some of the biggest names in toymaking, such as Hasbro®, Duncan Yo-Yo®, Schleich®, Breyer®, Crayola®, KNEX® (Lincoln Logs®), and many more. The exhibit also features the world’s largest Etch-A-Sketch, a retro 80s arcade area with working classic games, a life-size doll house, a LEGO® play area, and a life-size Monopoly car and game board.
Mid-America Science Museum is located at 500 Mid America Blvd. in Hot Springs. General admission is $12 for adults, $10 for children ages 3-12 and seniors aged 65 and older, and $11 for teachers and military.
The museum hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 9 AM to 5 PM, and Sundays, 1 to 5 PM. For more information, visit https://midamericamuseum.org/ or call (501) 767-3461.
