Head out on the town with AIGA Austin!
Our newest event series, AIGA Goes…, is all about creating the space for our members to connect while checking out some of the amazing activities, sights and sounds Austin has to offer. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet other designers, plus you’ve got a built in crew to do cool stuff around town. Our next outing will be:
AIGA Goes … to the Austin Toy Museum
The museum features primarily toys and figurines from the golden age of the 80’s eventually to have over 20,000 pieces, with toys ranging back to the early 1900s. Crown jewels of the collection include key comic books which have provided many of our favorite media icons. The museum also features over 50 video game systems all the way back to the first home console unit.
Pong anyone? These video game systems are available to play!!! The museum features some of the most popular arcade games of all time, including Dragons Lair, Space Invaders, Ms. Pac-man, Missile Command, Centipede, Asteroids, Q-Bert, Donkey Kong, and Pole Position. All these games are original hardware and are free play for all visitors.
The admission fee covers your donation to the museum and will include a special tour and Q&A session by Toy Collector and Museum Director Caleb whose personal collection makes up the majority of the Austin Toy Museum toys.
We will mingle in the Toy Museum party room, and everything is BYOB!
