  • 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!
  • Very cute location. Staff was late when we had booked early Sunday morning. It was a self guided tour which the kids didn't care too much about. The games were fun though.
  • A great museum detailing the history of game in a digestible and fun way. The collection of retro consoles and games is amazing and best of all, you get to play some at the end! A great way to spend an hour or so.
  • Relive your childhood here. Show your kids how to play real computer games. Don't let them win, especially if they've ever called you old. Pong is here, as well as Duck Hunt, Galaga, Space Invaders. The only problem with the latter on the Atari 2600 there, was that you played with a controller rather than a Joystick. The proprietor explained that most kids, don't know how to use one. Kids, 😂 😂 😂
