National Videogame Museum Reviews
We werent sure what to expect at the National Videogame Museum, and were surprised how much fun we had! Old competitions between siblings continued after 30 years, still no winner! more »
Great to relive my childhood by seeing all of the old gaming systems and getting to play the original Nintendo and Genesis. Kids love the hands on exhibits and the arcade which has many different game... more »
Pretty cool place overall. They definitely need to do some upkeep on the games tho. I realize with all the kids playing with the controllers it may be hard to keep them in perfect order but 30% of them didn't work at all. There is also a train museum as well as a science/ technology museum in the same building. Unfortunately didn't have time to visit them. $12 is a little pricey for what they offer as you can run though all the exhibits in 15 minutes but if you are a true gamer and chill out and play a few games it's worth it for sure.
Blast from the past! This place was awesome. My while family loved playing all the games and experiencing gaming through the decades. The arcade at the end was a nice final touch. It was clean too. We will definitely be back.
