About
As kids, who among us never dreamed of growing up to be a sailor? After we go to space, naturally. This arcade game was created for those who never forgot their childhood dreams. And so, you are now looking through the periscope of a submarine and the enemy ships are sailing audaciously across the horizon, back and forth. Press “Start” and the green point representing a moving torpedo rushes towar

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.

Historic machines including some old favourites. Instructions to play available in English. Also an interesting small display of items from soviet times. Our mistake - we had only scheduled an hour.

My husband is a gaming geek, so this was a required stop during our trip to St Petersburg. We both ended up having a lot of fun playing the games, though we had to consult the English-language instruction sheet for some. We were pleasantly surprised to get a big discount because we’re senior citizens.

Blast from the past which will keep kids entertained.

There are a variety of arcade games which you get token for however you can also play computers games like Super Nintendo and PS. These are also a heap of fun and as parents a great blast from the past which the kids enjoyed too.

Easily the best activity in St Petersburg for kids. They didn’t want to leave and a great change of pace to the museums everywhere.

The arcade games here were very interesting and a fun experience! Most of the games have instructions in Russian and English on the walls so you can understand how to play, which I found very useful. I would definitely recommend coming here with kids, but even if you’re just a kid at heart, this place will be a great way to spend time playing some Soviet-era games at this hidden gem of St. Petersburg.

A refreshing break from the countless historical treasures around St Petersburg, such as the breathtaking Church of Spilled Blood just around the corner. Try the basketball table for two players. We were so instantly hooked on this game, we filled out the feedback forms just to get two extra game tokens. A fun place to visit with great atmosphere.
