  • The museum portrays a very interesting sub-culture from the last decade of the Soviet union, showing the first signs of creativity and thinking out of the box. As someone who was born here but raised ...  more »

  • As an American it was very interesting to see what games they had over in Russia. I am a big fan of classic arcade games from America so it was nice to come here and have a completely unique experience and be able to actually try out the games they have. My date brought me here, and she enjoyed it even more. She grew up on these early games so it was exciting to see her relive the memories of her childhood. As you can expect 40 years of age has not been kind to most of the machines. Most of them work, but most don't work as they did 40 years ago. The shooting games the calibration is way off and you can expect to play 1 game just to figure out where you need to shoot to actually score a hit. We really enjoyed the air basketball game where you push the ball into the other persons basket by hitting numbers that are on the board. It was a lot of fun and I hope to take her back again to give her a rematch.
  • Very interesting and unusual museum. In here you can find and play soviet arcade video games far away from electronic and contemporary one. Most of them were mechanical instead of made of bit. Very very nice experience for a small price and the possibility also to have something to drink and eat at the bar inside.
  • Interesting interactive place full of cool analog games from Soviet era. Great activities to do with friends and family. I'd recommend stopping by to give it a try.
  • It's nostalgia time! All the arcade games I've ever played back in times of my childhood!
  • Best place in town to visit if you're a tourist.
