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.

Compact but excellent

The museum is very small, but very interactive, lots of fun games to play, some waiting to jump on exhibitions but was fairly quiet! Very much enjoyed our visit.

I'm always up for nostalgia and for fun things, so it's always great when the two meet, and this museum does both. To be able to see the evolution of computers and computer games over the years, some of which I'd only ever seen photos of online, actually assembled in one place that I can see up close, it was...

Honestly, I loved this place so much! I didn't even see the Berlin Wall because I spend the whole day here. You can play with the old arcades, it has a lot of history and seeing the old consoles just brought back all those childhood memories. It was awesome! Next time I'm in Berlin, I'll be back here, especially on... More

This by far was our favorite place in Berlin by far. We must have spent 3 hours in this place and still could have stayed longer. They have everything from the history of video games, to plenty of hands on games for everyone. The nostalgia that was brought back for me and my wife was awesome and we loved that... More

It's a well sourced museum with a good mix of the popular consoles and more obscure items. While the focus is the history of gaming, the main attraction is the number of consoles and arcade cabinets available for you to play. Alongside consoles like the SNES and Mega Drive, there are a collection of arcade cabinets with games like Frogger,... More

Excellent hands on museum, small in size but plenty to see. It is well laid out showing how games consoles have progressed over the years. There is several video screens where you can listen to interviews and other articles. There are loads of old games consoles you can play. Plus some odd ones like a pedal bike!! It brought back...

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
