    The Museum is located in the swath of tourists and is fully tailored to them. They saw everything after a short time.

    We run on a tight budget so the 9€ entry shocked us at first. When we arrived, we saw old computers and video game consoles behind glasses and we thought: oh crap. But then a couple of steps behind we...  more »

    Fun nostalgia trip for us adults who could remember Pacman, Tetris and Pong and fun for the kids (9, 14 and 16 years of age) who played various old and new games. A lot of facts and not very expensive (20 euros for our entire family).

  • They managed to make a great mix of information stations and gaming stations. You get to learn about games at the same time you get to play with them. They also have life size bedrooms of different decades.
  • Friendly English-speaking staff. Cool one floor museum with engaging displays, free arcade games and tons of little surprised. I loved it.
  • Awesome place for gaming aficionados; get to see all the retro arcade machines, console games and gaming history laid all out in front of you. Relive classic moments like shooting space debris in Asteroids, jumping on tortoise with everybody's favorite Italian plumber and more. Intriguing experience to me but unfortunately my parents aren't really into gaming, and it didn't help that entrance fee is slightly on the pricy side compared against the available content.
  • Very pricey for what it is, was good reminiscing over the older games but after 20 mins it was all over. Had no chance playing any of the games due to the kids and the virtual reality would of cost even more money. Shame
  • Not a huge area, but plenty to read about. They have many games available for play. I caught myself playing on a dreamcast for 20 minutes. Probably good for kids.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
