FRISCO, Texas — Monday is National Video Game Day and the National Videogame Museum in Frisco wants to celebrate.
On Monday, guests at the museum will receive a free Sonic the Hedgehog pin and 12 total tokens to use in the arcade.
The museum has been open since 2016 and houses gaming systems from the past 40 years.
"You're getting a taste of the whole history of the industry," museum co-founder John Hardie said.
For example, few people know that before Nintendo ever made video games, it made children's games and toys.
Visitors aren't just limited to reading about the history of video games at this museum.
Around every corner are games from various eras that are available to be played.
"It really brings back that nostalgia factor," Hardie said. "It brings a smile to their face."
There are dozens of games inside the museum that can be played and an additional 41 inside an 80s style arcade.
The National Videogame Museum is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday.
