Gamers El Moro Video Game Museum

In the back of an unassuming video game store in the historic center of Mexico City is the entrance to a hidden video game museum, a corridor lined with showcases displaying antique gaming consoles.

The main room is a journey through the history of gaming, laid out chronologically from the first consoles to the latest generation. The tour begins with a collection of toys that inaugurated the electronic era, like the Fabulous Fred or the 2-XL. Then appear the first pocket video games designed by Atari, Electronic Readout Systems, or Watara Supervision.
