The collection of games and toys of Margaret Woodbury Strong (1897-1969), who was a privileged little girl, is the basis of Strong National Museum of Play. It's the world's largest museum of its kind, with over 300 000 objects in its 9 000m2 exhibition space, and the most visited tourist site in the state. There is plenty to keep you occupied for a whole day, playing and finding out in a fun way about a part of American culture. It is never forbidden to touch, on the contrary!
