Where Pac Man lives The first ever museum for computer games worldwide was founded in Berlin. You can embark on a magic time travel trip covering six decades of gaming history. Including Giant Joystick and Painstation, Arcade Hall plus the Wall of Hardware. A Berlin highlight in the trendy borough of Friedrichshain Kreuzberg. A mere 5 minutes away from Alexanderplatz (U5 Weberwiese). You can reach our museum very comfortably by cycling here. Whether you come from Alexanderplatz or from Warschauer Straße/Frankfurter Tor, you will find wide lanes for cycling on both sides of Karl-Marx-Allee and traffic lights for crossing. We have a number of cycle stands right next to our entrance. If you wish to start a cycling trip from here, feel free to ask for a free copy of Bike Map, which has a very convenient format to fit into almost any pocket.

Loads of computer game devices from different years. Visitors have an opportunity to play some of the games. I would advise to go there in the morning when the museum opens. We visited the museum during lunch time and the museum was too packed.

Great, nostalgic walk down (random access) memory lane. Small in size, but packed with great consoles old and new, to have a go of! Informative AND fun! Entertainment for kids and adults alike (as long as you like computer games).

A compact and interesting exhibition with videos, photos, computer games and consoles from the past. Yes, you can play some of the old games such as Tetris, Donkey Kong, Super Mario, but really not that many games. The modern VR (virtual reality) was not in...More

The museum is very small, but very interactive, lots of fun games to play, some waiting to jump on exhibitions but was fairly quiet! Very much enjoyed our visit.

When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of
the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party
hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is
palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter
are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may
find a bar with international crowds, electronic
music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other,
an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit

There were some old consoles playable when I was there, like Sega Mega Drive / Genesis, and Super Nintendo, as well as some 80s arcade games. The website implies that it's still hands on, so I think there's a good chance.
