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.

Arrived at lunchtime, got a family ticket for €19. It was quite busy and hot, especially as you got further into the museum. There were lots of interactive exhibits, unfortunately as it was so busy we could only really watch as others played - there...More

A fun museum with the opportunity to try out lots of retro games and consoles. The bedroom sets and arcade room were terrific and very nostalgic. Some very interesting features too on the history and evolution of gaming

We loved the computer museum, it was very interactive, and a manageable size. The bedroom sets and the arcade a really fun, and it's very child friendly.

There's a lot about the history of computer and video games. It just feels like there could have been more hands on games to be able to play.

Loads of computer game devices from different years. Visitors have an opportunity to play some of the games. I would advise to go there in the morning when the museum opens. We visited the museum during lunch time and the museum was too packed.

Great, nostalgic walk down (random access) memory lane. Small in size, but packed with great consoles old and new, to have a go of! Informative AND fun! Entertainment for kids and adults alike (as long as you like computer games).

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

There were some old consoles playable when I was there, like Sega Mega Drive / Genesis, and Super Nintendo, as well as some 80s arcade games. The website implies that it's still hands on, so I think there's a good chance.
