Spend three days taking in Moscow’s sights as you learn the history of the city, dating back to the 12th century. Walk through one of the oldest quarters of Moscow, the Kitay Gorod neighborhood. See the historical Red Square, Christ the Savior Cathedral, Patriarch's Bridge, Gorky Park, and the Changing of the Guards Ceremony in Alexander Gardens. Stroll through the Downtown and Zamoskvorechye Districts to see 16th-19th century churches and cathedrals. Then journey to Patriarch's Ponds residential area and Pushkin Square to see a more modern side of the city.

The best museum I have ever been, you get the chance to play with old arcade games, and it is very cheap! The museum shop is also awesome, if I lived in Moscow I would be there everyday!

Located in the expo centre it was a little hard to find as I wasn't expecting it to be located in such a modern building, saying that the transport infrastructure made it pretty easy to get about. The museum was clean and the staff welcoming and explained the tokens that are used on the machines. A surprising amount of machines in there with instructions in Russian and a few in English, but as you can imagine they are pretty straightforward to play. As is to be expected with machines of this age they do tend to breakdown, so don't be surprised to see a few off for maintenance. The particular favourites of the wife and I were the basketball and hockey games, great fun and brings the competitive side out in anyone. Well worth the visit if in the area or if you have any passing interest in video games.

We were unable to find the museum with the building seeming to be under renovation, no signs to indicate where it had gone or when it would open again.

Located in a very beautiful location - the Expo Center - it is nice to walk to the museum. Compared to gaming today this machines are ancient :) but the fact that you see those kids playing, and not happy when they have to leave, it shows you that gaming was always fun! :)

Loved it, im not a big video game fan. But this place was fun, fun, fun. I would class it as being that bad its good. You have to find this place if your in moscow i guarantee you will have fun, playing games like ''Pull the Turnip'' and you can even taste some soviet era soda.
