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.

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.

are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may
