Kids had lots of fun! The machines had no English translations but it wasn’t necessary as the games were all easy to understand. The staff were great and spoke English as well. The place is the perfect size for you to leave the kids alone and know that they are safe while you sit and have coffee. I see kids and adults alike enjoying the place. I’m glad we found this place on our trip to St. Petersburg.

Thanks a lot for your review. You're right, all instructions on the machines are in Russian, so we have color labels on the the walls or above the machines with information in English. Also we advise our visitors to use English catalogs with all instructions (you can take it at the reception). We hope your children enjoyed their visit even without reading the rules.

I like the retro feel of the old arcade games. Feels like traveling back in time. And the building fits it perfectly Also nice to be able to try some of the old games. Really cool

We felt so lucky to be able to not only see, but play Soviet arcade games that people our own age would have played when we were kids. The ambiance of the museum is super fun, they have a nice cafe for snacks and good coffee, and the museum is right by major attractions.
