Have you ever looked back over your childhood toys and been completely confused why everyone keeps calling them "Vintage"? Well, I guess we all are suddenly a lot older then we thought, because all our old toys are now going into a museum.

There is a museum in Rochester, New York that is called The Strong Museum. It is also known at the "National Museum of Play" and is probably every kids' dream to go there.

Inside this epic and sprawling museum, you can find over 10,000 board games, hundreds of arcade games, thousands of dolls and action figures as well as basically any toy from your childhood you can remember.

The museum is a highly interactive and is responsible for the collection of all the historical toys. The building houses a bunch of different organizations inside, including "the International Center for the History of Electronic Games, the National Toy Hall of Fame, the World Video Game Hall of Fame, the Brian Sutton-Smith Library and Archives of Play, the Woodbury School, and the American Journal of Play."

They all work together to create interactive and educational exhibits based around play. The collections are actually insane. They categorize everything into sections so that one of the specialized curators can take care of the things.
