  • This is such a fun place to go! It cost us around $7 USD per person for the entrance fee and some game tokens. There are games ranging from the year 1980 to 1994. All of the games are very fun and you'll really enjoy yourself here. There is also a burger restaurant here as well but I didn't eat there. However, the food looked good.
  • Cool hangout place for the retro enthusiasts. Museum itself is rather small and works in the usual pay-and-play format. Has a Burger Heroes joint inside on the ground floor. Bonus tip: you may also want to try the soviet-era milkshakes made using an authentic soviet-era machine (just make sure you order at the museum front desk, not Burger Heroes 🌚)
  • The best attraction in Moscow. Definitely make time for this. We went without expecting much but ended up having a great time. Really interesting to see all the old games and try to work out how to play them.
  • Very interesting but barely a museum. Rather a nice café with approx 30 antic arcade machines. But still fun!
  • It's not really a museum but a kind of amusement place with old arcade machines mostly from the late 70s, 80s and early 90s, so most of the from the pre-Perestroika era.
