I have always loved to play computer games, and this museum was amazing to get the full history and the opportunity to replay the old games. Definitely worth a visit.

We had a great time exploring new tech from VR to motion controlled stuff. Very friendly staff, too. Do not expect any CoD, FIFA or Candy Crush kinda games. This is small start ups presenting interactive experiences. We truly enjoyed it.

A collection of the earliest video games both from arcades and Home computers. Lots of games for both adults and kids to play and well worth a couple of hours if you have any interest in the subject matter.

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

There were some old consoles playable when I was there, like Sega Mega Drive / Genesis, and Super Nintendo, as well as some 80s arcade games. The website implies that it's still hands on, so I think there's a good chance.
