8004 Dallas Pkwy, Ste. 300, Frisco, TX

Ready player one? If you have little (or big) video game enthusiasts in your family, this museum is a must-do for your Frisco itinerary. The only one of its kind in the U.S., NVM houses more than 100,000 vintage and present-day consoles and artifacts related to the history of gaming.

Parents and kids alike will enjoy playing old-school games together, like Pong, Mario and Intellivision games in exhibits that are set up to transport visitors back to the beginnings of electronic gaming. One exhibit feels exactly like a typical 1980s living room, complete with upholstered couch and wood-grain wall paneling.

In addition to the regular museum space, there’s also an arcade space stocked with various vintage games (your admission includes tokens to play a few of these), as well as a gift shop. The museum is housed in the Frisco Discovery Center.


Admission is $12; $10 for ages 10 and under, senior citizens, teachers and active military personnel; kids ages 3 and under are free.


10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday; noon to 5 p.m. Monday; closed Sunday
