FAMILY | Boardwalk Arcade 

The Strong Museum of Play is recreating the seaside resorts of the 19th and early 20th centuries with its newest exhibit Boardwalk Arcade. The summertime exhibit — running May 24 through September 7 — takes the curious through the evolution of arcade amusements, from the traditional carnival games of Coney Island and Atlantic City to contemporary staples like Hoop Fever, Ticket Monster, and "Temple Run." A section also focuses on video arcade machines like "Spy Hunter," "Virtua Racing," and "The Ocean Hunter." Opening day will feature "pop-up" circus acts by Flower City Vaudeville.

The museum is open Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Sunday, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $13.50 for Age 2 and older; Free from children under 2. 263-2700;
