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.

  • 👾LOVED👾the visit! There is a big variety of old gaming consoles to try and a relaxed atmosphere with not too many people. Good location away from the hustle and bustle of the main drag. We didn’t have to wait to play on any consoles. The store person was really friendly and helpful and overall a wicked experience! Recommended for all ages and a great place for kids birthdays if they’re into games.
  • I went to this place once as a kid and once as an adult, and I have loved it both times. It’s so good to play the games from my past for a quick trip down memory lane. Staff are nice, polite and super helpful. Everyone is trying their best to give customers the best experience possible, and it shows! Please, if you got kids that like video games or are a kid at heart that wants to revisit old games, go here. It’s so worth it. ❤️
  • We attended the Pokemon and Pizza day and loved it. Great spot to spend the day for kids and big kids at heart. Good selection of retro games and consoles. Some fun craft activities for the kids on their special events. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Thanks for the fun day out
  • Absolutely fantastic! Could've played games for hours. Console display was incredibly interesting and staff were very knowledgeable. Will be back.
  • Great place to host parties or a corporate team building activity. The museum triggered so many happy memories and then the gaming area let me make some more 👌
