What’s in a Game

What’s in a Game? was the exploration of the evolution of puzzles and board games—popular winter pastimes still today—during  the 19th and 20th centuries. Museumgoers could engage in interactive elements of this exhibit by playing vintage games or assembling puzzles. The lineage of still-popular board games—Monopoly, for one— was represented through its different iterations while games popular in the 1800s from now-defunct producers were on display. What’s in a Game?  was up from November 2016 to March 2017.
