Inventure PlaceIn 1995, Inventure Place, home of the National Inventors Hall of Fame, is dedicated in Akron, Ohio (opens to the public 3 days later). The National Inventors Hall of Fame was established in 1973 by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and what is now the National Council of Intellectual Property Law Associations. The board of trustees of the National Inventors Hall of Fame decided on 3 Sep 1987 to relocate in Akron with a new building. According to their literature, "Inventure Place is dedicated to the creative process. We want to inspire you: through hands-on exhibits, interactive programs, special events, and every other fantastic experience we can dream up. At Inventure Place you are an artist, scientist, inventor, musician, tinkerer, film maker, discoverer, and creative genius. Discover the Inventor in You!"
