Helsinki Computer Game Museum

Helsinki has a computer game museum, basically some guy had a personal collection and then donations started rolling in… Haven’t actually managed to visit it (I am so ashamed), but there are hundreds of of old home computers, gaming consoles, calculators, PDAs…

The site is in Finnish (https://www.tietokonemuseo.net/), but the lists of hardware are extensive and have short summaries in English behind a click

[Added] Sadly the space they found is not great, an electronics retailer lets them use one lobby area, so they cannot display all they have got, not even close.

That’s great, and good to see that although they headline gaming they’ve got plenty of computing going on too. It reminds me a little of the museum in Swindon, which also has quite a restricted space.

I now finally made the decision to visit this place – and it has closed, like two months ago! :sob:
With no known new address! :sob: :sob: :sob:
