Welcome to Museum of Soviet Arcade

Machines – place full of nostalgia and fun!

Our museum is unique all over the world,

it was founded by three young enthusiasts.

They collected arcade machines from

different countries of the former Soviet

Union, removed them with love and care so

you can watch - and play. Our collection

continues to grow constantly.

What a great surprise in this 2-story arcade on a cold afternoon. First, you shouldn't expect a museum but more of a nostalgic arcade with something for everybody. While the games varied in quality, video versus mechanical, my kids loved it. They were a bit frustrated at first because it wasn't what they were use to in accuracy in gaming... More

As a tourist, you will learn Moscow is overloaded with history. Pretty soon you can get tired of museums and churches, in this case go here, the name explains it all - you can see and play dozens of soviet arcade machines. You can do it alone, but coming with someone else is double the fun! There is also a... More

Great experience to see and play arcade machines a lot of which are mechanical rather than computer based. You even get genuine kopeks to use as the coins for the slots. Table football was still the favourite, and enclosed timed version with electronic scoring. Good for 1hr

I'm no expert where gaming is concerned but you don't have to be to really enjoy this place. There's a good variation of machines and the English language brochure you are given helps explain the games. I would also like to thank the really kind lady who was working there that day. She kindly volunteered to take time out of... More

This is more fun than you might imagine. It may seem funny to call an arcade a museum but history comes in many forms, no one more valid than another. It was interesting to see the Soviet answer to the arcades popular in the West during this era. Several are direct knockoffs and if you are familiar with video games... More

It's a well maintained and playable collection of vintage machines, some electro-mechanical, some electronic. All operated by 15-kopek coins, of which you are given 15 for the entrance fee (a little expensive, 450₽). There was an English guide sheet but I had a Russian speaker with me to translate the original instructions. A lot of fun. In the same place... More

Spent an enjoyable few hours here. These machines would be 70's style at best but I really enjoyed the fun. My 11-y-o was less impressed (the Ipad generation!!!). Great analog retro fun, Coffee shop/Burger bar attached with good food. Good fun for a few hours.
