A trip down memory lane

If you played video games in the 80 and 90, you'll love this place. So many video consoles, arcade machines and computers from the past. Really a visit worth

If you played some games when you were young, you need to come to this place...
It took me back in time to my childhood.
So nostalgic, and games and consoles are taken care of.

Geeky. Stylish. Worth a visit.
Jan 2020
If you're a tech geek, with a special thing for retro video games - it's THE place to go in Wrocław. You'll find a wide selection of games and platforms to play them on - ranging from early Tennis for Two (a.k.a. Pong) to relatively recent 1990s DOS-based Jazz Jackrabbit. And a LOT of others of course, as well as some more static exhibits (which are still worth it).

I had a great time there and I would gladly recommend it to anyone who has ever played a video game (even if they don't anymore).

How technology changes
Dec 2019 • Couples
Children today won’t believe that the games on display are within the lives of their parents. This is a great but small collection of some of the most iconic games from the 1970s onwards. If that was when you first came to notice gaming then you are in for a treat. Kids will look at these things and think what on earth was good about them. How times change.

Good if you’re a computer game enthusiast
Feb 2019
This is a very small museum, but the entry cost matches that fact. I had expected there to be more information about the history of computer games, but it was just a museum with consoles from across different decades. Excellent if you’re a computer game enthusiast, not so much if you can’t figure out how to play some of them. The museum also gets quite busy and some of the games are long, so you may not necessarily get chance to play on all of them. Ok for something to do on a rainy day or to keep children occupied, but if you don’t go you’re not really missing out.

Great idea to spend time with your kids.
Aug 2019 • Couples
Awww these memories. It was so nice to feel like a child again and play this oldies. Bring your kid and show them how games looked like in the past. Or take a friend and Metal slug or destroy him in Tekken or Soul calibur. Lots of fun guaranteed.

A wonderful flashback to our childhood
May 2019 • Couples
This small museum located at the opposite end of the same building as the Kolejkowo Miniature Railway display was this fun flashback to days gone by. It was a collection of early days computers and games. They had a number of old PCs, joysticks and monitors, and some brief descriptions but the highlight was the old games. There was everything from early favourites like pong and pacman through to car races and a pinball machine. It was a nostalgic trip as we recognised many things from our childhood. The only disappointment was they did not have frogger:) Highly recommended.
