About
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 area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.

    Great fun morning!!
    Exceeded my expectations! Really went there for the kids but the adults had just as much fun!! Not a huge place but cleverly laid out and lots of try your hand at - didn't expect so much! Couldn't spend a full day there (unless you are really, really REALLY into computer games!) but it filled a morning and a bit. Thrilled to see that so many things worked as they probably have a tough shift!!!!

    Hours of fun for kids and adults
    Fascinating tour of computer games, that was very nostalgic for parents as well as absorbing for preteens - who experienced the games we grew up with. All very interactive. Had to tear them away from frogger, space invaders, Tetris, Pac-Man, and pong! By far the museum we spent longest at on entire trip to Berlin. No cafe but places nearby. Very small and uninspired shop so also a cheap morning out.

    Fun for all the family
    We spent a fun couple of hours here with our two kids (6 and 12 years old). There’s a lot of facts about gaming history, which is interesting as well as lots of different games and consoles to have a go on. There are retro arcade games as well as home consoles to try. My husband and I both loved the 90s bedroom set ups as it brought back happy memories, I particularly enjoyed playing Mario! Definitely worth a visit, it’s close to a U-Bahn station so easy to get to from anywhere in Berlin. It’s worth prebooking tickets online. We had a 10:30am time slot and it wasn’t too busy.

    Really fun place for a visit
    Really fun way to spend a few hours with our 8 year old. The adults loved looking at the retro games and consoles we remembered; our son just enjoyed the games. The different gaming rooms set up to show different decades are great plus the info about each game in German and English.

    Cosy and playable museum!
    On a rainy day in Berlin, this museum is worthwhile! It is a cosy museum with the as good as complete history of video games. The whole decoration of the museum was light and accessible. And of course, there were playable games, ranging from consoles to arcade machines! Also, the famous Painstation is here, so if you dare.

Really enjoyed visiting- loved showing my son the sort of games I played when I was younger. All the games were playable from arcade machines, consoles and virtual reality. Pac-man and Pong were real favourites!

Great museum. Plenty of opportunity to play the games (we went in the evening and it was quiet). Very enjoyable even if you're not a seasoned gamer.

Fantastic and informative museum about the history and development of video games. Plenty of interactive exhibits and opportunities to get hands on with some old arcade games and consoles. Entry price is more than reasonable and you can easily spend well over an hour here despite it's small size. Have been here with both my wife and parents over the years and even those that don't like games find it enjoyable even just to see. Expect it to be busy at times but be patient and enjoy what's on offer - it's a unique experience - but also don't go in expecting an arcade! This is a museum first with some (probably less than 20) games on offer, but still fantastic!

The museum was very interesting, you could learn about the history of gaming devices as well as enjoy them yourself. It is very nice to go with your family or friends.
