A small place but packed with exactly what you’d expect. The history of gaming and even the chance to sit and play games. No pressure, no rush, loads of time to spend playing or browsing. Very friendly. Well worth a visit.

I pre booked on viator. Its a tiny little space to visit. But packed a punch. Very courteous staff and helpful. Played old consoles; felt nostalgic mostly and enjoyed my 40 mins there. Cool little museum with ample opportunity to relive your childhood.

Spent a memorable couple hours here reading about the founders and history of gaming, and playing games I have not played in decades. This small museum was packed with a wide range of technologies. Would love to have this specialty 'museum' in Toronto. Well Done!

We went along with family, which injected some extra fun. Novel idea and playing the games between our different generations was pretty funny. Our young kids enjoyed it too. The museum itself is quiet and they limit people which is good, so we could play...More

A history of electronic game consoles. Spent some time reliving the video games of my childhood. Particularly liked the original Galaga upright arcade console.

This little museum was such a joy to visit. Start by taking a self-guided tour through the history of gaming, and look on in amazement at how technology has grown within the gaming industry. Finish by playing old classics such as Pong and Duck Hunt...More

Bookings can be made online or over the phone. If it’s quiet I’m sure walk ins are fine, but being school holidays it may be busier than usual.
