    They gave us 2:00 tickets for the planitarium, and 3:00 for the exhibit, for those that are late.

    Sorry I won't be able to make it. I hadn't realized that it would conflict with my daughter's dance performance later today. I thought I'd have enough time for both. Hope you all enjoy - look forward to "hearing" your reviews.

    K all, we are standing on the front stairs basking in the sun.

    Hey all, I'm on track to baing on time! I'll see you all at one. For the newbies, I'm the tall guy in the red sweater and black coat.

    Might not be able to go after all.

    $6 to get into museum- nothing that says there is any extra fee for the video game exhibit.

    OK, all! I'm going to be away Saturday, but this is still happening on Sunday. I've never been to this museum before, but I'm sure there's an easy place in the lobby to meet at.

    As for cost, for some reason they don't like to tell you what the entrance fee is on the site...

    If they are doing it similarly to the Smithsonian exhibit, they allow you to play some games as well as just showcasing.

    I also might want to explore the museum proper myself, since again I've never been there before.

    Anyway, see you all at 1:00 on Sunday! Keep an eye out for the really-tall-long-haired guy.

    Abby, depending on how my life is going that day, I might need a ride back to at least the New Haven line...

    Does anyone know how much it is if you're not part of a group rate?

    February 21, 2014

    • Michael

      That is annoying... I couldn't find the price on their site. If anyone has been there and could shred some light, that'd be great.

    Super excited for this exhibit. The museum itself is also awesome.

    Are we sticking with the 23rd or changing the date? Just curious! The 23rd works much better than the 7th for me.

    February 16, 2014

    • Ari

      Yeah me too

      February 17, 2014

    • Michael

      Yeah, I think it's better at this point to stick with the plan and go at the posted date. It's hard to get everyone to advance these meetups, and since it's a museum, it shouldn't be too crazy for us anyway.

    Just found out ill be out of town that weekend

    Good job, Ari! I saw this exhibit at the Smithsonian in Washington, and it gives a different perspective on the video games we know and love. It's very interesting to see Pong given a description like you'd see at the Met!

      Please ignore my question fellow Michael.

  • Dina

    I'm in touch with Laura Vookles, the curator at the HRM... we may get a discounted rate or some such thing. Stay tuned! :-)

    Of course, my going depends on my work schedule and monetary situation.
