The exhibition

Keyvisual Games | © SNM / #pop_zurich

Around the globe, 2.5 billion people play video games. The exhibition takes visitors on a journey through the 50-year history of electronic games. Initially a fringe phenomenon, games have evolved into complex entertainment media and have become an important part of our culture. The exhibition traces the historical and technical development of video games from amusement arcades to virtual reality, and also explores aspects that are perceived as a concern. Gaming stations invite visitors to immerse themselves in virtual worlds and try out the games for themselves.
