Un tesoretto nascosto per gli amanti dei videogiochi Soddisfatto della visita... tante anticaglie videoludiche che faranno molto piacere agli appassionati... ottima la possibilità di giocare con tante postazioni, da antichi cabinati alle console più recenti... custodisce tante piccole gemme, che mi hanno piacevolmente sorpreso (versioni originali di Doom, una postazione dedicata al Producer Suda 51, Delle copie "sepolte" provenienti dall'America del terrificante videogioco di E.T.)... un luogo che trasuda nerdaggine da ogni dove. Unica nota negativa è che non vengono spiegate nel dettaglio le storie delle varie console, se non per una minima parte di quelle presenti... un vero peccato. Rimane comunque assolutamente da godere per gli amanti di questo medium!
If you're coming to Rome you HAVE to visit here There are few things that makes this place the best museum in Italy and the best video games museum in the world: 1. It costs only 8 euros! That's the cheapest museum in Rome! And, with this ticket you can see the history of video games (literally),and play 60 different games! From old game machines to new counsels, and even a VR section! No need to add more money! 2. It's unique and I really never seen some museums like this before, I even think it's the only one of it's kind. 3. It's not even a small place. It may seems small from outside but soon as you going in... Wow. So many rooms with so many games It was a great fun And there is mo rush you can play till closing time.

Il regno dei videogiochi!! Mi è piaciuto molto perché è un museo adatto sia ai giovani che ai meno giovani. Lo staff si compone di ragazzi molto giovani ma professionali, cordiali, competenti. È stata un'esperienza che farò ancora in futuro e la consiglierò a tutti i miei amici, come consiglio a tutti voi di andarci almeno una volta nella vita!
Great collection, fun for passing an hour or 2 They have a great collection of arcade games you can play once more. Felt like a blast from the past. Lot of great games in their collection with some interesting explanations and details about it. We had a great time, spend an our of 2 - 3
