There is a destination in Upstate New York that is fun for all ages and educational too. Now it is being recognized as one of the coolest museums in the country. This museum celebrates fun and games from our childhood. I have been there several times and completely agree!

It came in at number three on the list and in my opinion, it should be number one. This museum is fun for all and is filled with toys, games, playtime activities, and so many interactive exhibits, that you could spend days having a blast. It's an awesome mix of nostalgia and fun.

My favorite is the outdoor Hasbro Game Park. This is where you can be inside a larger-than-life exhibit of your favorite board games.
