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!

Good place, brings back emotions! It is properly decorated and stocked with all the needed exhibits. Too bad it is so small, only two floors. But those are two floors of pure goodness, with old 80-90s commercials running on TVs..

Helsingin tietokonemuseo ja pelikonsolimuseo (Computer and Game Console Museum) is also called Tietokonemuseo ATA. It is situated on the 4th and the 5th floor of Verkkokauppa electronics shop. You get there only by a lift (an elevator). Opening hours are the same as for the shop.

The museum is free. There isn't any admission fee or staff there. They say that there are over 500 different computers, game consoles and video games there but for me the museum seemed to be too small. However, it was very fun to see the original Commodore 64 and VIC-20. Commodore 64 was my first computer when I was a teen.

Remember to visit the free observation deck on the 7th floor (50 meters above the sea), too. You get there only by the middle lift.

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.
