Come play with light in Rochester as you broadcast the eclipse from the nation’s premiere destination for all things play! The Strong National Museum of Play is an iconic location in upstate New York and will be hosting eclipse-themed programming for its thousands of guests.
The Strong is also conveniently located within half a mile from other Rochester Eclipse 2024 destinations—including the Brewhouse at High Falls and the Rochester Museum and Science Center—and multiple hotels, including a Hampton Inn and Suites just off campus (to be completed in 2023).
The Strong’s campus stretches across more than 13 acres. The museum will have just completed an expansion in 2023.
