About the Museum for Computer Enthusiasts and Computer GamesThe Museum of Computer Games in Berlin (Computerspielemuseum) had two periods. It was first opened in 1997 and operated for 3 years. It then became an online museum only and reopened in 2011 in Berlin's Friedrichshain neighborhood. It is relatively small and not very well known in the city, but a great place to spend time with the children.
This museum holds a permanent exhibition of interactive digital culture. A total of 30 international exhibitions have been held, and today it holds one of Europe's largest collections of software and entertainment hardware (computer games). More than 300 interactive exhibits present the history of computer games, with more than 300 consoles and computer systems, 10,000 magazines, books, art objects and videos.
