Spent a memorable couple hours here reading about the founders and history of gaming, and playing games I have not played in decades. This small museum was packed with a wide range of technologies. Would love to have this specialty 'museum' in Toronto. Well Done!

A history of electronic game consoles. Spent some time reliving the video games of my childhood. Particularly liked the original Galaga upright arcade console.

This place has ancient video games to the new stuff from pong to the Atari, Famicom, NES, Sega Megadrive, NeoGeo, N64... you name it they got it. The kidault in me happily dispensed $16 and jumped straight into some retro gaming. It's probably worth spending...More

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.
