The importance of play for young and old

From Nine To Noon, 10:10 am on 2 August 2021

Nicolas Ricketts has been the curator of The Strong Museum of Play in Rochester New York since 1998.

He's researched the history of paper artifacts and board games, and served for a time as the president of The Ephemera Society of America.

The museum itself holds exhibits ranging from a pinball playfield to a video game hall of fame, also serving as a record and a guide to the way we play throughout our lives.
