The Minnesota Science Museum will become Minnesota's biggest arcade over the next few months as it becomes home to a video game exhibit.

Game Changers will take over the Great Hall on Level 4 of the St. Paul museum, taking visitors through the history of innovation within the gaming industry.

This will include features exploring the designs behind world famous games like Space Invaders, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Sim City.

But the best part of the exhibit is the fact there's 100 playable video games in the Great Hall.

These will include a selection of 20 original classic arcade games like Asteroids and Pac-Man, retro favorites including Streets of Rage, Sonic The Hedgehog and Diablo, along with more recent hits like Angry Birds, Rock Band 3, Fruit Ninja, and Minecraft.

Admission to Game Changers is included in the regular Science Museum admission of $19.95 for adults and $14.95 for kids aged 4-12 and seniors.

The exhibit will start this Saturday and run until May 5.
