This museum ist a lot of fun for everyone, who likes videogames. It showes nicely how computergaming develops during the last decades. I loved to play in the arcade area, such games as Tetris, Pacman and Frogger.

This little museum is a lot of fun, and you can get carried away for hours playing all of the different games. It's great to be able to see and play games that are hard to find, and on consoles that you rarely see now. The little arcade area was fun, with games such as Tetris, Pacman, Frogger and Space...

It was a good break during our walks in Berlin and due to the fact that it was quite cold and started raining. The museum is very small , but has some interesting items. The funniest thing is the arcade room in my opinion, where you can play, Pacman, Frogger, Nba Jam and Space Invaders. It is a maximum 30... More

Do you like video games or would like to know about the history of it, you need to visit that place. They have some guide tours in the museum but I didn't participate of it. There are many machines, videos and information about video games but I expected more. There are some consoles and arcades that you can play.

I was really looking forward to visiting this museum because, as others mentioned, it brings back childhood memories. To get to the museum though I had to buy a ticket (8€ per adult) and there I encountered the first disappointment in the person of an amazingly rude salesclerk. I soon got past her and her insulting treatment to the museum... More

If you were born in the 70's or early 80's and you grew up with video games, this is a great place to visit. They take you step by step from the first games untill the current games. Advice, play pac-man with the giant joystick.

Forget the history of the war, forget the big grey wall, the holocaust can wait this place has videogames. So many interactive games to play and marvel at from pong to 3d wipe out. You will learn whilst melting your brain with all the best games ever. They have life size figures and bedroom replicas of the past forty years.... More

This is an absolutely terrific little museum with very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff and is well worth the price of admission. The first part of the museum recounts the history of computer gaming, from the very first machines and consoles to the newest experimental virtual reality gaming environments. It's hands-on, interactive, and was absolutely fascinating to my 12 year... More

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighbourhood Profile
Friedrichshain
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 buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
