  • Beautiful! A museum exhibit on the history of the game and then a large number of playable games! If you love video games projected at least 2 or 3 hour visit! Trained and personable. Highly recommended.

  • Today for the second time I visited the Museum of videogames; It is a great satisfaction, because certain things weren't there the last time. The staff at the VIGAMUS says that games of the Hall Oculus are changed every month, in fact I played a very different game than the first visit. The Hall Oculus is a room dedicated to virtual reality. In the immediate vicinity of the Hall there is a machine for playing "Oculus Tekken '; It works like the machines that were once present in the bar, except that it does not need coins. I really like the Conference room, although there was no Conference. The Museum is equipped with bathrooms, which were clean; If it is not a coincidence, it means that the staff at the VIGAMUS attaches great importance also to the bathrooms, which I think are important in museums like some other premises open to the public. In the Museum there is a room where you can buy food and drinks. The VIGAMUS is one of the few Italian museums where you can touch things on display, as well as being one of the few Italian museums which allows you to take pictures and shoot video. For those who live in Rome, I recommend to visit the fair of Rome when Romics, because there you can buy vouchers for the VIGAMUS at the price of €2 for each good, whereas normally you have to pay €8 to enter the Museum. The vouchers have an expiry date, but let's talk about six months; There is plenty of time to arrange a visit to the Museum.

  • Quite a lot to see for a small place. A lot of focus is on the history, so they have many different old systems. Thought the Wreck it Ralph arcade game was really fun and unique. It would be nice if the gift shop had more stuff to choose from.
  • If you're a fan of video games, you'll love this place. It has a huge amount of history, and plenty of systems for you to play. Highly recommended!
  • It is the best place for knowing the story of videogames. Also for play a game , there are a lot of consoles, old and new , and PCs to play with friends. Very amusing place .
  • Awesome place with all important stuff! Also free to play arcades and PCs
  • 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.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
