Great museum if you're a games nerd, like my 15 y.o. daughter. She had to laugh very hard at the games from the 70's and 80's. For the older generation it's great to bump into the games from your youth, like Pong, Asteroids, Frogger and...More

A relatively small premise divided by sections where visitors can either play videogames or read about them. The range of videogames date from the very first one up to the latest. I would recommend going on anyday other than weekends, if its busy you probably...More

When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of
the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party

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.
