Frisco, Texas, approved funding for the museum. The Dallas Morning News reports visitors will be able to build their own versions of Pong, a big game in the 70s.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep. At last, there will be a place to once again play Pac-Man. Frisco, Texas approved funds for the National Videogame Museum. It's a traveling collection that now gets a permanent home. The Dallas Morning News reports visitors will be able to build their own versions of Pong, a big game in the '70s. You can even visit an arcade filled with machines from the '80s - provided, of course, you are willing to put down the games you've been playing right now. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
