Owner description: We all love old computers and now Verkkokauppa com and private collector Mr. Ari Tommiska want to share a very unique collection for free for all enthusiasts and visitors. The museum has an amazing display of old computers and gaming consoles from Ari's private collection. He's been collecting old computers and gaming consoles since 1984 and now for the first time the collection is available for public display. We hope this collection will bring back good old memories!

Museum was great place to visit, it brought back lot's of memories from childhood when internet didn't exist. Collection was fantastic, it was amazing to see very rare computers and game consoles early from 70's. The place was bit small. Free entry was very good! I recommend to visit here!

Worth visiting if you are near the ferry terminal. This museum is only small, 2 small rooms over two floors, but for anyone that has owned a games console in the last 30 years is a great trip back in time, and entry is free. Let you inner geek out.

Interesting place, a little on the small side but well worth taking the elevator up for a look. Great display of some classic hardware.

A bit of fun for free. Not a big walk from Kamppi so if you have a couple of hours spare and a special interest, or geeky kids them it could be fun.

We stopped by while waiting for our ferry as it's just oppositie the port. Not so much a museum as a couple of small floors of display cabinets with some retro computers in them. A nice collection but probably not worth a special trip unless you are really interested in that sort of thing, although it is free. Also worth while you are there taking the lift to the roof of the building where there is a free observation deck with an old military plane plonked up there.
