  • It was a great place to learn about the history of our favourite pass times on the internet and in gaming. All consoles worked perfectly and the staff were all super friendly and helpful.
  • Great nostalgic museum, run by a retired couple with real passion and love for their collection. Lots to see and do. Museum and a games room to bring the memories flooding back. Highly recommended for anyone with even a passing interest in computer history.
