National Yo-Yo Museum is at 320 Broadway in the rear of the Bird in Hand store; the entrance is in Diamond Alley. The history of the yo-yo is shown through collections of the toy dating from the 1920s through the golden era of the 1950s. Modern high-tech, machined yo-yos also are exhibited, as are winning yo-yos from national and world contests. The highlight of the museum is a 50-inch-tall yo-yo weighing in at 256 pounds. Yo-yo lessons are offered noon-2 on Saturdays.
