Pokemon Go players can gather at The Whaling Museum & Education Center for a Pokemon Go Meet Up Night from 6 to 8 p.m. July 21. Museum personnel will be on hand to walk new players through the ins and outs.
The museum, at 301 Main St. in Cold Spring Harbor, has plenty of virtual Pokemon on its grounds and also is a designated Pokemon Go Gym, where players can battle each other, says Judy Palumbo, marketing and development manager at the museum. The museum is also providing lures to draw additional Pokemon characters to nearby village locations that are Pokestops in the game, she says.
In addition, the museum is setting up an indoor Pokemon hunt for younger kids who don’t have smartphones but want to get in on the fun. The museum staff has set up Pokemon cutouts indoors for younger kids (ages 4 and older) to find, Palumbo says.
The museum has a suggested admission charge for the event of $5 per person. “We’re hoping that people will come into the museum and hopefully make a trip to the museum part of their Pokemon Go experience,” Palumbo says. Museum admission will include a free water, she says.
