  • The museum was perfect. Near the subway, it offers you the opportunity to play lots of game, some from 60s, 70s, 80s ... but also from our recent games. Not only you can learn more about the history o...  more »
  • Frankly useless writing a review for a place that works well enough as it is!. The Museum is not huge: grows in the basement of a building, but still well organized. WHAT CAN YOU SEE? There's a whole history of videogames from the 70 's to the early 2000. There is everything a forty year old like me want to see and touch. SELECO, COLECO consoles, etc. up the BAR, via CBM64 COINOP, VIC20 and SPECTRUM of all types. WHAT CAN YOU DO? Of all: you can use various video games and consoles, Coinop ... along the way there are many kiosks/emulators with thousands of games (including Commodore and LeserDisc). At the end of the path you can try the OCULUS RIFT: a modern virtual reality system, other than those so far tested (more responsive and accurate, with a great 3D perception in the Viewer). IT IS A PLACE SUITABLE FOR THE FAMILY? I went there yesterday ... Out cold .... We were looking for somewhere different to spend the afternoon ... My wife (who is not a player of videogames) she enjoyed playing with Q-Bert and Pacman in 75-79 years coinop. My son (9 years old) has got to have fun, to figure out what the difference is between her and console her dad ... In short: we all enjoyed it so much! HOW LONG AND HOW MUCH IS THE ENTRANCE? Adults pay € 8, children. We have been in for more than two hours (I also challenged to Tekken one of the managers. He won!). Peculiarities: for EVERYONE OUT of NETFLIX HAVE WATCHED the DOCUMENTARY on ATARI (artfully attributed to videogame ET), where in the town of ALMAGORDO was dug the dump and unearthed video games, consoles and pretty much the whole ATARI, in the Museum there are ORIGINAL relics (agiudicarono a case of ATARI materials).

  • Thanks to vigamus we could take a step back in time and remember the magic and the atmosphere of those video games that have accompanied us during childhood. It was also a way to convey those emotions in our 6 year old son. The exhibition is very comprehensive, but the highlight are all game with which you can have fun freely. Inside the Museum there are several "gems" not to be missed. The highlight of this museum is the interactivity that allows children to appreciate. The staff is friendly and very helpful.

  • Pretty good VG Museum. Lots of consoles and free to play consoles. Decent attention to details and good hardware. Also tried occulus, but only one demo included in the ticket.
  • It's small but interesting
  • Events and new games, next to the old ones, are usual here
  • 4 stars because part of a rare species of Museum. When the game will be recognized as a work of art to be protected and preserved will always be too late. 5 not because despite the interesting collection can be done still tremendously in terms of choice of Exposition from video games made available for public testing.

  • Beautiful. That's what I always wanted to do, done well and with lots of "goodies" from prehistory computing. He'll bring some personal piece.
