About

Welcome to Game On!

Embark on a nostalgic odyssey through the pixelated past and into the high-definition future at our interactive exhibition, "Game On: The Evolution of Video Games". This immersive journey unfolds across the decades, showcasing the rich tapestry of gaming history. From the rudimentary blips of the Magnavox Odyssey and Pac-Man to the sleek sophistication of the PlayStation and Mobile Gaming, visitors will experience firsthand the technological leaps that have defined each era.

As you take in the exhibit, engage with the actual consoles that sparked revolutions in living rooms worldwide. Feel the tactile joy of a joystick, the click of a cartridge, and the camaraderie of couch co-op. Interactive displays invite you to play iconic titles, while ambient soundscapes of 8-bit tunes and triumphant fanfares transport you through gaming's golden ages. A chronological journey from the birth of video gaming.

Local voices add a personal touch, sharing anecdotes and memories that resonate with the collective gamer spirit. Rare memorabilia, concept art, and developer interviews offer a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the creative processes that fuelled our digital dreams.

But wait, there's more, jump into oversize worlds of selfie spots and photo ops. Plus get hands on in some practical gaming challenges.

Whether you're a veteran gamer or a curious newcomer, "Game On" promises an interactive celebration of the pixels, platforms, and play that continue to unite and inspire us. Join us for an unforgettable exploration of the consoles and characters that have shaped entertainment across generations.
