What's Up Next: The Games We Play
The games we grow up playing with our families are often our first glimpse into the types of activities we will come to love as teens and adults.
Through games, from board games to video games, fans have found a way to become more and more connected to the sports they love. As gaming systems evolved, such as the Wii and XBox Kinect, they have allowed fans to relate to sports on a new level. As technology continues to evolve and we enter into the world of virtual reality, video games are now providing the ultimate fan experience. Through virtual and augmented reality, the fan becomes a member of their favourite teams and can actively participate in their favourite games while in the comfort of their own home.
Join us as we remember the games and gaming systems which sparked our love of sports through The Games We Play exhibit; Opening January 2018.
