The museum contains more than 100 consoles, representing the evolution--and sometimes revolution--that occurred from the 1970s through the 2000s. Go behind the scenes of your favorite games and consoles, learning about the work that went into them, and how they established a foundation for the consoles of today. Play a plethora of classic video games, replaying games from your childhood or making entirely new discoveries. Play a round of Pong, challenge a friend to a high score in Space Invaders, or blast through levels of Super Mario Bros, Sonic the Hedgehog, Alex Kidd, and Crash Bandicoot. This is merely scratching the surface. Relive your childhood, discover gaming's sometimes secret history, and plant appreciation for old-school gaming in a younger generation.

  • This is a cool niche museum if you’re into video games, especially if you grew up with them in the 80s or 90s, but I wouldn’t call it something that would appeal to a more general audience.  more »
  • Sad to leave as it was a bit hectic in our schedule we need to leave for other place but all of us were full of excitement, pretty happy to see the big smile our our children faces.  more »

  • Had a fun trip down memory lane. Look at and learn about old game consoles. There's memorabilia to be bought if that appeals to you, a selfie corner with retro gaming props. There are also various game consoles with games for visitors to experience. These games are changed from time to time. There are also old school coin operated arcade machines to experience. Our favourite during our visit? Pong! You can't keep a good classic down!
  • Awesome journey through the history of video games, with lots of interesting info and neat displays. The little playroom at the end is really fun and you can stay for as long as you'd like playing games as old as the 42 years old Pong! Definitely worth it for about 15 bucks. Come with a friend as a lot of the games are MP!
