This is a really fun place to hang out, especially if your are travelling with teenagers who are into gaming. Me and my son spent a great afternoon there as it's really interactive, with lots of games set up for 2 players. It was wonderful...More

A must for anyone who grew up with video games in the 70s/80s/90s and want to indulge in some nostalgia. Lots of static displays of consoles and games, lots to read on the walls and plenty of arcade machines (some originals) and consoles for free...More

The museum was perfect. Near the subway, it offers you the opportunity to play lots of game, some from 60s, 70s, 80s ... but also from our recent games. Not only you can learn more about the history of the video games but you can...More
