  • Who doesn't like a quick game of Pong, or Miss Pac Man on a Sunday afternoon?! Brilliant place.
  • Been meaning to go to this place for years and when I finally got there it did not disappoint. my kids were a bit doubtful but when they saw the games on offer they got stuck in and really enjoyed themselves. The owners were charming and always on hand to help out or answer questions. I loved to see the computers of my youth and play missile command on a BBC Model B again. Great place, would highly recommend and looking forward to my next visit.
  • Amazing museum. So many computers and games consoles, many of which can be used. Also a nice shop with merchandise from local artists.
  • Really good, you can play really good retro games. 😊
  • An unexpected gem. Our visit started with a nicely pitched quiz so that our children studied the history of computers and gaming, which was well researched and presented. They were then able to have a couple of hours absorbed playing family friendly classics on x-box, ps2 and Nintendo game cube. Meanwhile young and old pitted their skills against one another on classic arcade games, with youngsters noting their surprise that their parents gaming skill. I also enjoyed the trip down memory lane seeing the displays of the home computers and technology since the 1980s, while learning much about the gaming and device history of those days and earlier. It is such an interactive place reviving immensely fun games. It is an inspiring labour of love of the charming couple who have put in so much time and presumably covered so much of the cost of running the place for others' enjoyment - apparently the technology has been collected over a long period - thank you so much. It was a privilege to be there. We can't wait to return.
