    Reasonably large selection of exhibits, many of which are playable - if busy it can be hard to find any free, playable, exhibits.

    If you're a small group (4-8 people, 12+ years), try the game they offer! Can be done after 18:00, costs 2 Euros extra and gives you a different view of the museum and the exhibits!

    This place almost made me cry of joy :) Though they should definitely add more stuff. Still - great place to take your kids and show them the real stuff from our childhood.

    Really enjoyed the trip down memory lane. The museum is small but we spend quite some time walking around and playing video games. Especially the old arcades are awesome.

    Interesting Museum, unfortunately they focus on the years 1995-2010 a lot, not digging that deep into the more interesting 1980-1995s area where most of the games and game genre have been invented.

    A bit small, but quite modern with a nice collection representing gaming tech, innovation, history and culture. Much interaction, video and reading. Only for fans.

    At this point, there was the Café Warschau with his musical garden restaurant. An impression of the former glory yet conveys the mosaic and the spiral staircase in the entrance of the museum.

    Amazing collection of video games and consoles spanning five decades. Loved the arcade! Unfortunately the new VR experience was still under construction.

    Best museum in Berlin! The arcade is a must-see (or must-play)

    small but packed museum with interactive features (you can sit in an 80s living room and play pong)...

    Genial for all computer games lovers. You can see first game consoles and home computers (for ex. ZX81) and play some old games on original old consoles.

    A nice 20 minutes tour to back my childhood :) But I will never forgive them not including Lotus and Prince of Persia to their collection :) Anyways, worth the time and money spent.

    Nice for computer game lovers, lots of retro games. But also very informative about the history of video gaming

    Reduced but really interesting exibition. It comes from early gaming adictions until the computer consoles and you can also play some of the exibits. Not that innovative or interactive visit, but fun.

    really enjoyable museum, but a little bit small. It will take maximum 30 minutes with taking lots of photos.

    Computer Game Museum just debuted in Berlin. Visit here for a walk down memory lane or a lesson learned as they explore the evolution of video gaming - from Pac-Man & Sonic the Hedgehog to Half Life..

    It's still quite small, but promising! They have some nice arcade machines to try out and a great amount on information panels about the development of games. Not sure if overpriced entry fee though..

    Seems small but time flies when you're inside. Make sure to have plenty of time to wander around. Also, try the PainStation in moderation.

    Carry a valid student ID and grab a ticket for 5 euros, its cheaper than the discount you can get with a berlin welcome card :)

    If you have good knowledge about gaming history this place won't show you anything new. Highliights: original Vectrex, Computer space and Pong (two latest not playable)

    It's not the best place. I wanted to hear more about recent development in games, different companies, more about the start of online gaming and MMO and more but they were missing.
