Computer games. Evolution of a medium
With a permanent exhibition from 1997 to 2000, the Computer Games Museum made its first appearance on the Berlin cultural scene. After the following long years of a pure online presence, a new beginning follows in 2011: Thus, the museum moves into listed rooms on Karl-Marx-Allee: Outside socialist "candy baker style", inside classics from Atari, Nintendo, Sega and Co. Indulge in nostalgia and test whether you are still a master at the consoles.
In the exhibition you can discover more than 300 exhibits. Thousands more are stored in the archive. Among the highlights are the GDR game machine Poly-Play, the PainStation, Pong in all its variants and the legendary Nimrod. Starting in the 1950s, you will also explore the games culture beyond the consoles: Play Pong in the 70s, Space Invaders in the 80s and Super Mario in the 90s in authentically furnished rooms. In an arcade with an 80s look, you can also gamble on original arcade game machines
