This is a cool niche museum if you’re into video games, especially if you grew up with them in the 80s or 90s, but I wouldn’t call it something that would appeal to a more general audience.

Sad to leave as it was a bit hectic in our schedule we need to leave for other place but all of us were full of excitement, pretty happy to see the big smile our our children faces.

What a innovative idea! Fun place to spend a couple of hours. Reminds me of my childhood with plenty of 80s games.

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.
