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.

The computer game museum, is a small and quite place to visit. It is something different to see in Berlin. It takes you back to your childhood. With all the first versions of Nintendo and playstation.

The entry fee is medium, even with a students pass. The museum is rather small, but contains a lot of gaming hard and software, many of it rare, some interactive (you can play the games yourself). Overall an interesting and fun experience.

This place covers the history of computer gaming with a particular focus on German game developers. Very friendly staff. It's not as big as most Berlin museums but it's well worth visiting for a couple of hours.

Friedrichshain
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,

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.
