Reading through an old technology related time line, I came across this: "From Saturday, June 15, through Sunday, September 15, Videotopia debuts at the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The traveling exhibit offers a hands-on interactive look at the history of video games." (Source: http://web.archive.o...e90s/1996.html)

Looks like their website's still up: http://www.videotopia.com/

So... anyone been to this? It traveled around for a few years. What was it like? Was their an earlier videogame history exhibit, or was this the first?

Wow, that brings back old memories... visited that exhibit when it came to the Baltimore Science Center in 1999.  Basically it was a very nice travelling arcade.  I think it may have been the first time I saw a Pong and Computer Space machine.  I think it was the only time I ever saw a Cosmic Chasm machine!

I went to that when they brought it to DC. It was great. 

 

Holy fsck, that was 20 years ago.
