A small place but packed with exactly what you’d expect. The history of gaming and even the chance to sit and play games. No pressure, no rush, loads of time to spend playing or browsing. Very friendly. Well worth a visit.

I pre booked on viator. Its a tiny little space to visit. But packed a punch. Very courteous staff and helpful. Played old consoles; felt nostalgic mostly and enjoyed my 40 mins there. Cool little museum with ample opportunity to relive your childhood.

Bookings can be made online or over the phone. If it’s quiet I’m sure walk ins are fine, but being school holidays it may be busier than usual.
