  • A must visit for 80s kids. The name says it all - the museum, albeit a small one, has exhibits depicting the history of the gaming industry, from the 1940s to the 2000s and onward. The place also allows you to play classic games on classic consoles and arcade games, such as Super Mario, Mortal Kombat and Sonic the Hedgehog. The founder was there when i visited and was very friendly. Definitely worth the entrance fee.
  • Wow. I was so impressed on so many levels. The historical display was actually fascinating. There were also some great technical info / explainers like how the console guns know they're on target. Then of course it was really fun playing the games afterwards. Brought back some great memories and plenty of laughs.
