Took my grandson to visit. He was impressed with what I had played way back when. Some were things his dad had told him about but he had never seen. We even got to play Pong. Great time.

I’ve played several video games over the years, but these games are far from my favorite form of entertainment. So, when the family decided to visit the National Videogame Museum, I braced myself for an hour or so of boredom! To my surprise, I found...More

So fun! I expected to be able to play a few games but they have a TON! Every exhibit was amazing and the arcade is AWESOME (especially the music). Best part....giant Pong and OREGON TRAIL!

This museum has many working games going all the way back to the original Pong, and even more on display. Your admission includes some game tokens so you can play some of the vintage arcade games yourself. Fun for both kids, and "former kids".
