Where in the world can you find the world’s largest home Pong console, a 1.2 million pound steam locomotive, a haunted house built in the late 1800s and a walk-in hurricane-force wind simulator? Frisco, of course! Frisco’s growing museum district features four of the most unique and interactive museums in North Texas. No matter your age or interests, when we say there is something for everyone, we honestly mean it.
Whether it’s your first visit to Frisco or 100 th , we highly recommend a visit to the Frisco Heritage Museum and Center. A collaborative project between the City of Frisco and the Heritage Association, the Frisco Heritage Museum and Center allows visitors to get up close and personal with yesteryear. The center features historic homes and buildings available for tours including a log cabin, a house built in 1895, the replica of the original Frisco Depot and many more. Head inside to the museum and you’ll learn how this area’s earliest settlers lived, worked, and played through photographs, historical artifacts and educational displays.
Frisco’s newest museum offers visitors a different kind of glimpse into the past. The National Videogame Museum is the country's first dedicated videogame museum, established to document, preserve and exhibit the video game industry's rich history. The museum features more than 100,000 videogame consoles, games and artifacts from the past and present and brings to life science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) values by tapping into America’s enthusiasm for playing and creating videogames through interactive exhibits.
Bright ideas! That’s what Sci-Tech Discovery Center hopes to inspire. By providing hands-on discovery experiences through permanent and rotating exhibits and educational programs, Sci- Tech Discovery Center seeks to spark a life-long interest and help equip children of all ages with advanced science, technology and math skills. The team at Sci-Tech Discovery Center believe in advancing education and providing inspiration to the next generation of engineers, scientists, educators and innovators.
Founded in 1963 and relocated to Frisco in 2009, the Museum of the American Railroad strives to preserve locomotives from the steam and diesel-electric era, as well as preserve and restore passenger coaches. The Museum is home to one of the largest collections of Pullman Cars in the United States, as well as a Union Pacific Steam Locomotive "Big Boy" 4018, one of the largest steam engines ever built. An indoor exhibit is also housed on the second floor of the Frisco Heritage Museum.
