Stockholm’s Museum of Video Games

Visiting a museum in a historic European city doesn’t have to mean wandering around dusty old exhibits. The relatively new Spelmuseum in Stockholm is the only museum in Scandinavia that lets you explore the artifacts and relics of our more recent past, joining the growing ranks of museums devoted to video game history.

Opened in 2016, the Spelmuseum covers the evolution of video games from their pixelated beginnings the more mind-blowing virtual reality of today. Spread out across a number of thin, themed exhibition halls, the museum holds a collection of video game-related objects ranging from Mario toys to a Virtual Boy. There are old PC games and small bits of decades-old gaming hardware you’ve likely never heard of.
