The Nostalgia Box is Australia's 1st interactive Video Game Console Museum.

In this inviting and interactive space, visitors are invited re-discover their beloved childhood favourites and play them with their friends and family.

This wonderful concept was dreamt up by video games lover Jessie Yeoh, who left a corporate job to become the 'Guardian' of The Nostalgia Box.

Pong, Space Invaders, Super Mario Bros, Sonic the Hedgehog and Crash Bandicoot are just some of the classic games you'll come across in the well-set out Gaming Area.

Why not have a go and see if you can beat that Final Boss once again, or let your kids discover some of the early arcade games which gave birth to the video gaming industry in the mid 1970s.

The Gaming Area is complemented with a Museum, which houses over 100 consoles from the 1970s through to the 2000s. Here, visitors will have the opportunity to see just how consoles rapidly evolved over 4 decades and kids will receive a crash-course in the history of gaming. You may not have seen some of these historic consoles since childhood and kids are sure to be fascinated by the diverse range of items on display.

The Nostalgia Box is sure to be a fun experience for all visitors. Come and immerse yourself in the video game culture of the 70s, 80s and 90s; it promises both new experiences and a loving trip down memory lane!

The Nostalgia Box can also be hired out for Kids and Adult parties, as well as Corporate events; check out some of their great packages here.

Plus you can purchase a memento (or three) at The Gift Shop, home to a fantastic range of fun home and office decor, electronics and gadgets, collectibles, and much more. You are sure to find that perfect item for your geeky/nerdy loved ones!
