Computer Games Museum


Experience current virtual worlds, the games of your youth as well as those of your parents and grandparents in the Computer Games Museum. With functional classics, rarities and 3D simulators, you travel interactively through the cultural history of games. You can try out most of them yourself - including rare originals and milestones in the genre. Immerse yourself in the world's largest collection from 70 years of computer games. And follow their impressively fast and diverse development, which is not only exciting for fans.


With a permanent exhibition from 1997 to 2000, the Computer Games Museum entered the Berlin cultural scene for the first time. After many years of pure online presence, a new beginning follows in 2011: The museum moves into listed rooms on Karl-Marx-Allee: Socialist “confectioner style” on the outside, classics from Atari, Nintendo, Sega and Co on the inside. Indulge in nostalgia and test whether you are still a master at the consoles.


In the exhibition you can discover more than 300 exhibits. Thousands more are stored in the archives. The highlights include the GDR slot machine Poly-Play, the PainStation, Pong in all variations and the legendary Nimrod. Starting in the 1950s, explore gaming culture beyond consoles: play Pong in the 70s, Space Invaders in the 80s and Super Mario in the 90s in authentically furnished rooms. You can also play on original arcade game machines in an arcade with an 80s look
