“The countries first dedicated video game museum”
This isn't your traditional museum. To parallel the industry we represent, exhibits feature loads of interactivity. There will be plenty of game systems to play from Pong to present, including a full reproduction of an 80's arcade. The museum is the evolution of the world-famous Classic Gaming Expo museum exhibit which is comprised of over 20,000 items spanning numerous collections and over 25 years of historical document and data archiving. The ultimate vision of The National Videogame Museum is to have a physical research and reference facility that will also serve as an interactive educational exhibit to the industry and general public alike.
If you have watched numerous videos about gaming history on youtube, this museum is a physical representation of that. There are plenty of gaming related items to look at and try out. Everything is grouped into different categories such as controllers, handhelds and third party. The signage seems to do a good job of giving people context about the various parts of gaming history, although some of it, like the sign dealing with controllers was off to a side that was not noticeable right away. Overall I hope this museum is able to continue to put items on display in a way that still has a good flow.
Really cool place! even if your not in to video games, just seeing the history of how video game consoles developed is very interesting. They have all kinds of video game consoles setup from old to new to play with.
