  • Left me a bittersweet taste, the truth that the idea is good, meet a good collection of consoles and video games and arcade machines. but ultimately falls short, truth is that pass a time very nostalgic recalling old moments, there is a reconstruction of rooms of the 70s, 80s and 90s but still the difficulty of the language, not is German and barely understand English, makes that ae not enjoy explanations and videos that there is to see, although they have not because they have it in Spanish.

  • If you were born in the 70's or early 80's and you grew up with video games, this is a great place to visit. They take you step by step from the first games untill the current games. Advice, play pac-...  read more »
  • Good selection of computer games. Nice background presentation with historical background of computer discovery and evolution. Definitely worth a visit :) 
  • Small, pretty simple (you may say incomplete), yet still manages to pack the punch. There are few legendary arcades you can play, that alone makes it worth visiting.
  • I loved this place. It was very nostalgic seeing the old coin-ups and computers like Atari and Commodore 64. They have a Computerspace and Pong arcade in the exhibition. Museum has a shop too offcourse. I do wish the museum would be a bit larger.
  • Definetly a not common museum. This is a must-see place for all videogamers. Probably it is too small compared to other museums.
  • It's very small, don't plan ahead with any more than 2 hours for it. Take a tour, they have interesting facts (Why does Mario have a mustache? Because the amout of pixeln was too damn low to give him a nose and mouth) and a Q&A. Decent stuff to play with (The Pain Machine, Beamer Quiz, playing some Pokémon), but generally rather suited for a "nostalgica trip" not if you want any serious gaming knowledge.
  • It's a museum for computer/video games. What's not to like!? Great place to learn more about games and even play games!
