Arcade After Dark

Join the Cradle of Aviation Museum for a night of retro arcade gaming! Over 50 playable classic arcade games for your retro gaming satisfaction. The Arcade Age explores the short history of video arcade games through exhibits and gameplay, just as they were intended to be experienced - in an arcade! The exhibit tells the story of video arcade games; from the pioneers in the early 40s and 50s to the golden age in the late 70s and early 80s to its crash, revival, and ultimate decline in the 90s. It is a story of the creative and innovative people who explored groundbreaking technologies, the games that sprung from their ingenuity, and a culture that was shaped by their developments. Complete with unforgettable favorites like Ms. Pac-Man, Galaga, Space Invaders, Centipede, Donkey Kong, and more, all of the games are set to free-play. The machines have been spread out to maintain social distancing and entry is limited so reserve your tickets now!
