Located around 100m from Berlin's Weberwiese U-Bahn station, the Computer Games Museum is the first museum of its kind in the world.

With over 300 exhibits, this Berlin museum showcases classics, interactive objects, game artworks, and rare originals. The motto of the Computer Games Museum is 'homo ludens digitalis' (the playing human in the digital age). Visitors to the museum will have the opportunity to experience recent developments in virtual reality.
Berlin, the historical capital of Germany
A hub of culture, media, politics, and science, Berlin is the capital city of Germany. Travellers will be mesmerised by the vibrant culture, eclectic mix of classic and new architecture, and delicious food of Berlin. The Berlin Wall Memorial is a testament to the hostility that once plagued Europe. A must-see is the 26m high Brandenburg Gate, a sandstone monument inspired by the Acropolis in Athens. History buffs should head to the former Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, established by the Third Reich and located about six hours away from Berlin. Renowned for its museums and galleries, Berlin is home to approximately 300 art galleries and more than 170 museums, including the Pergamon Museum and the Computer Games Museum.
