The National Videogame Museum

As I was going to be in the DFW area for a few days, I wanted to reconnect with some old friends of mine that I hadn’t seen in a while. One of them, a fellow nerdling such as myself, suggested that we meet at the National Videogame Museum in Frisco which, much to my great shame, I had never heard of before.

My son knew of it, though. Upon hearing that was our destination, his eyes lit up and he started blabbering about how he had read all about it in a book he’d gotten at the library. Apparently, I was doing something right!

Arriving there, the museum, also known as the NVM, was part time capsule, part blooper reel, and part time travel trip to a 1980’s arcade. It was amazing even though it made me feel like an old man to see some of my childhood toys beneath the glass of a museum display case.

Still, if you find yourself in the Frisco area, I highly recommend checking out this place. The entry fee is reasonable, there are a lot of great things to see and learn about, and the 80’s arcade is a must-experience.
