4.7/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web
Have some old-school fun and see what the world of arcade games looked like behind the Iron Curtain at Museum of Soviet Arcade Machines. Here you won't find any of the well-known game titles from the West. Instead, the museum offers a rare opportunity to play a series of original products of the Soviet gaming industry on the authentic machines of the era. For an enhanced sensation of the bygone days there is also a restored Soviet soda vending machine that you can use. The admission fee for the museum includes a handful of old USSR kopeck coins on which the machines run. While some games might be difficult to understand without some knowledge of Russian, most are self-explanatory and can be fully enjoyed by everyone.

  • Overall impressions were very positive. It was interesting to learn not only how amused by our parents, but also to play into something new. It will be interesting for both children and adults. Great weekend for the entire family.
