Spacewar!, the world’s first digital video game, is the foundation of this tribute to 50 years of gaming culture. But its the exhibit’s 20 playable video games—on arcade, console and handheld platforms—that are the stars of the interactive show. Museum admission includes four gaming tokens so you can try them out, along with a Spacewar! simulation on a model PDP-1, the system for which it was first developed in 1962.
