We all love old computers and now Verkkokauppa com and private collector Mr. Ari Tommiska want to share a very unique collection for free for all enthusiasts and visitors. The museum has an amazing display of old computers and gaming consoles from Ari's private collection. He's been collecting old computers and gaming consoles since 1984 and now for the first time the collection is available for public display. We hope this collection will bring back good old memories!

Nice museum, possibility to see old computers, game concoles, other old electronic preserved from destruction. Good place to remember how computer development begin. Located near modern electronic shop to better compare the difference. The former Finnish Air Force Soviet built Mig - 21 fighter plane of 1960-1990 located on the roof of the building.

This isn't a place you could spend an afternoon, it's really two rooms of computer equipment and consoles. However, it is an enjoyable visit. It's free, and about 5 minutes walk from the cruise terminal. In the two rooms there are consoles dating back to the 1970s, including ones from my childhood which made me feel old! Randomly, once you're... More

Computer and Game Console museum is actually situated under the same roof with IT-goods store. It's small but there is a good collection of old hardware for true enthusiasts. On the roof of the same building you'll find a good view and a fighter plane!

This is NOT what we can call a museum, but more a private collection display. It is located in an entrance hall from two floors of a multimedia shop (Verkkaukoppa), based in one of the Helsinki passengers' port (Jätkäsaari). You'll do it in 15 minutes if you are taking the opportunity to look at all pieces. If not, the waiting... More
