Owner description: 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.

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!
